I'm having an insomnia night, so did a bit of research.
http://www.dynamechtronics.com/ and may offer some help with manuals. Don't expect much support for a machine that's probably 20 yrs old however. There's also a yahoo group but not very active. A few members here have dynamechatronics experience.
The manual might offer some help. I'm guessing the software might need to be reloaded as a first step ?What is the first thing I should do to test if it still works?
Outdated and non-standard afaict. Very unlikely to be a pc based control unless someone has made it so. Most people here would look to convert it to Mach3, probably no small job. IF the machine works well with the existing control and electronics go with it. Just my 2 cents.is the original programming out of date? are there any part/upgrade I can get to make it fcn easier for the everyday student?
Not much help I'm afraid, but maybe it gets the ball rolling.any help would be greatly appreciated.
