Hi, ive got a step-four foam cutter i bought back in 1995 to use in producing rc model kits, we eventualy decided to use cnc cut templates on a `drop bar` auto cutter and the things been sitting there ever since!
Anyway, ive dusted it off and oiled it up, its working fine, but the software is not exactly good!, it runs in doss on my 486 that was still atached in a room of balsa dust and still works!
What im looking for is something that works well to drive the cutter, i also have 2 other driver boards a hobby cnc and a stepperworld board
What would anyone reccomend as a good package, the problem with the std software is that i couldnt cut spar slots or anything other than a wing!, i need to do both!
do any of the current software packs drive the step-four drived board or do i need to use the other boards?
whats the best software?
hi and welcome! I haven't tried this one but I'm looking to in a few weeks:
seems like its got what you're looking for... Don't know if it'll drive your current cutter, but if it doesn't do the hobbycnc I'd be bummed = it is the combo I was thing of!
cheers - Jim
Experience is the BEST Teacher. Is that why it usually arrives in a shower of sparks, flash of light, loud bang, a cloud of smoke, AND -- a BILL to pay? You usually get it -- just after you need it.
