    Default Techno Davinci

    Gentlemen, Just joined today, mainly because I have a line on a Techno DaVinci CNC machine. I am being told it currently doesn't work. Trying to get the current owners intent and a substancially better description of what "It doesn't work" means. I have several questions. I am new to CNC, but not new to electronics and computers.
    I have attached pictures of the machine. It appears to have servo motors. I have also reached out to Techno Support and this machine is fully supported.

    I suspect the reason it currently doesn't work is due to the controller. My questions are

    What would need to be replaced to run this on Mach 3? I guess being new I need this spelled out

    Does the Gecko G540 work with servos? I don't think so.

    Is it worth considering a g540 and swapping out the servos for steppers?

    Hello,

    Running mach3 on the machine with geckos would mean a gut job on the electronics and motors.

    In my opinion, replacing servos with steppers is a huge step down in quality and reliability

    If you're the person I spoke to by email yesterday, I think the odds are good that it will be simple to get the machine running as it was intended, let's give that a shot first and see how it goes. Could be as simple as a fuse.

    Geckodrive does make drives for servos - the G320 will run DC servos from step/direction inputs. But Eric's right - that would be a last resort. Troubleshooting the existing setup would be the first thing to do. If you haven't bought it yet, the price should reflect its non-functional condition = don't pay more than the working components are worth.
