    Free. Touch screen and Virtual Control Panel functionality will be part of CNC11 standard feature set in the next CNC11 release soon to be posted on our website. So all you need is a touch screen LCD to take advantage of the new capabilities. Nice ones can be had for $250 on Amazon and Newegg. Centroid also sells a ready to go Allin1PC which is a touch screen LCD and PC built into one unit. If you are a DIY'er you can buy one of these from Centroid pre-configured for CNC use with preloaded Centroid CNC software and use the "report" feature in CNC11's Utility menu to copy over the existing CNC system configuration to the new PC and you'll be good to go.... or buy a Windows 10 allin1 touch screen PC from anywhere else and install the CNC software yourself, configure windows for CNC use yourself, and copy over the existing cnc configuration and you are good to go.

    Is there a reason you want to go with stepper vs. keeping your servos and going with All in One DC? What color caps are on your Fanuc servos? Personally I wouldn't go to backwards with steppers. What kind of lathe do you have? Picture?

    A friend of mine did his Comet mill, had yellow tops, didn't even change his encoders. Bought an All in One DC and never looked back. Support for everything you desire in the tool changer department too....
