I am putting together a CNC machine for woodcarving. I got everything together using a "d11983" control card. When I hook it to a computer I see a disk icon and inside are "EasySuite" and "GO! Bridge" file transfer programs. I downloaded EasySuite to a PC and GO! Bridge to a Mac. Neither computer could find the control card to allow me to send a G-code file to it. The "Smart Saw" person replied to my question with "The breakout board makes the connection between the cnc and mach 3 software." I do not understand what that means.

Does anyone have an idea what I should do next?

Best guess: That means that you need Mach3 software running on your computer.

Can you post a link to the card you are using?

Is this the board you have?

It should have came with USBCNC, which I think is some chinese knockoff control software.

I've never heard of EasySuite or Go Bridge??

The card is listed as d11983. I can find a wiring diagram on the web but no instructions came with it or on the web.
