Our school just purchased a new techno CNC Lathe. After using it enough to become familliar with it's capabilities I am rather dissapointed with the techno control software. It only supports IN/MIN & RPM and is rather limited in the number of standard codes it recognizes. Also it is difficult to adjust mid program to get accurate diameters. I was wondering if Mach 3 would run this lathe and if so how do I go about changing over? The Techno runs off a special card in the pc with a cable similar to a printer cable but with 50 pins. I currently use Mach 3 mill on a Tormach PCNC1100 in my classroom. I think the consistency of having both machines running Mach controllers would be very helpful to both students and myself. I am a CNC rookie and would greatly appreciate any advise.
