Just a note to all to let you know that I have resolved almost all of my technical startup issues just by reading the forums.

Its not so much the software as the hardware you will need.

The grex will handle most of this but not it all, you may also need Modio and a keyboard emulator depending on how many external switches you want.

If you go to downloads at www.artofcnc.com you can get the mach2 user manual, this gives lots of detail about machine set up.

Once you know how you want to set up your machine, we can then help you with the fiddly bits.

Also you can use a PLC to run the toolchanger. Mach can talk to the toolchanger over modbus

Hope that helps
