I'm hoping for some advice from you guys in the know regarding the best / most appropriate electronics for my project.
I have most of the parts for my X3 conversion; CNCFusion deluxe kit, steppers and drivers from Zapp Automation (simlier to the Kellings etc). I have a 1.8KW AC Brushless servo with driver/controller (BonMet) for the spindle motor (which I'd like to be able to do rigid tapping with etc).
I have a fairly standard break out board at the moment and I have a full blown copy of Mach 3 (which I purchased some years ago for a cnc router which has since been disassembled).
Looking around there are currently a number of better options for interfacing all this kit i.e. the smoothstepper, CNC4PC boards, Galil etc.
What would you recommend for this setup?
