Can anyone tell me if BobCAD can communicate with the FET3 controller from stepperworld? The software documentation talks about RS232 interface, but nothing about setting it up through the parallel port (which is what the FET3 uses). Do I need a special postprocessor to make it work?
Thanks for any help,
No, BobCAD will create g-code. You need a machine controller like Mach2 or TurboCNC to run your FET.
