    Hello. I am interested in the AXBB-E as well. Can you elaborate on the problems you are having? Thank you.

    He already wrote in another forum topic that his problem is that the analog 0-10V output on his AXBB controller does not go up to 10Volts, just to 9.2 Volts is what he wrote if I recall.
    On my AXBB it goes up to 9.9Volts.

    Yes, not going all the way up to 10. Not a big deal cause i just scale my drive analog input accordingly. My biggest problem with this board is/was the lack of 0V5 points for the stepper signal wiring. Also the jumper position was opposite to what is indicated in their manual. For the price it's a good deal still

    Thank you for replying... I did not catch that in the other topic. Good to hear yours is almost 10V. I'm coming from a C-10 BOB (using parallel port) and Leadshine drivers w/Mach 3 and now exploring both acorn and uucnc.

    Thank you for the information. I'm really leaning toward this, and I don't think it will be a deal breaker for me. Definitely looks like a solid setup.

    I went with the Acorn and really happy with it! I did go basic for awhile, was good enough to get up and running to learn everything (other than operating a waterjet I have no cnc backround). Loading each opp gets old by the time you want to start making parts though haha! Getting pro after setting up and learning it helps brake the cost up.

    is there a better alternative /any recommendations?
    Everyone will tell you that their personal preference is "better". Only someone that's used multiple controllers extensively can actually tell you which is truly "better".

    And "Better" may come down to what features one may need or use. So one might be considered better because it has specific features that another controller does not.

    When considering the Acorn, don't think of the Pro software as an additional cost, as it's really just part of the overall cost.

    I'm using UCCNC with a UC300ETH and UB-1. Cost is similar to the Acorn and Pro software. You can get the cost much lower with their cheaper controllers and cheap breakout boards.

    Mach4 with an ESS and breakout boards cost a bout the same as Acorn and Pro software.

    Eding CNC with their higher end control boards costs more than Acorn and Pro software.

    If to you, "Better" means cheaper, than look at LinuxCNC.
