I just bought a small computer controlled router at an auction, and it looks very well thought out. The only manufacturer information I can find on it is the control panel, which has CXR 2011, the computer router, on it; made with a label maker.
Also, do you think Artsoft / Mach 3 could be used to drive this?
The CXR-2011 got shuffled aside due to the end of racing season, because it took a lot of time to make the titanium parts for the Outlaw car, and my cohort was busy remodeling his house. We bought some Linux software, Ubuntu, I think, but haven't got a working computer to drive it yet. Tim will be rummaging through his junk this weekend to see if he can make one go. We think it will work OK, but simply don't know.
I definately know the feeling! I started converting my Mini Mill about a year and a half ago - it's finished, but all I have gotten it to do under power is draw a spiral! Now that I have gotten back to the project, I am trying different software again - Quickstep just looked easier to use than Mach to me. After downloading, Mach seemed easier, although I really didn't give Quickstep much time. I will play around with it some more when I get off of work for the week.
