Have you tried contacting Burny directly? I doubt you would manage to pick this up otherwise but I do seem to remember someone else talking about this a while ago on here. A search of the forum might bring it up.

Just spoke with a very helpful Rep at Burny. They adivised moving forward/off the AMC and using current technology rather then integrating it.

Will most likely reseach developing a Parrallel control system with Bob's and LinuxCNC or Mach3 option.

This would allow the cutter to run on the existing legacy Design/Plot/AMC Controller as well as have the option to use a more open control CAM system.

Will need to research the controls needed for the cutter.

I glad its getting sorted out. I have dealt with burny a lot in the past and always found them to be helpful. You also have the option of USBCNC as well for your control software and hardware.

Hi, I have been running my Wessel (ex pcb drill/router) as a highly accurate router for about 10 years with an AMC 4 controller (servo version) and have never had any problems. I do use WINAMC (for drip -feeding and config files to over-ride the flash memory) which I believe was a free download at some stage, but has now been removed. There is a possibilty that I can get hold of a copy if you decide to go down that route. G.

Sorry, but I have just been told that WINAMC is no longer available, but that the Burny version will do the same job (maybe better). G.
