im new to cnc..
im adding an MPG to my system and i believe i have figured out how to get it connected through the parrellel port and turned on in mach 3 under ports and pins, inputs,...(if im going down the wrong road in that respect please let me know) but have 2 questons...
1. in mach 3 under ports and pins, inputs there is options for mpg or encoder, which do i use??
2. i would like to have a rotery switch or push buttons to select which axis is being jogged.. does any one have a wireing diagram for that switch?
im electronicly dumb (ie not to swift with resisters, diodes ect) so simple explinations would be greatly appreciated..
thanks in advance for the help
