Where to begin. I'm not going to build my machine until I have witnessed all three motors responding to commands. That's just the way I want to do it. I have my power supply built. (Please don't think that means I know anything. I just followed the directions.) The PS puts out 37.5 VDC with three fused terminals. I have three 201 Geckos.  I have my three 640 oz motors. I have some linear rails and some plans for a machine. I have a dedicated computer for the system. I don't have a controller software, and I'm told that I might need a breakout box. I don't know what a breakout box is or does or where to put it. And I don't know if the box has to be matched to a particular software such as Mach. I hope you guys will address the issue of the breakout box (or board) and which one you recommend. Then I'll deal with the next issue. Thanks to all.
