    And you asked about the difference before guessing and wiring it up anyway?
    If you will not be swayed by logic or experience simply pick the idea you
    like best, but ask yourself why you sought advice in the first place and,
    for a simple life, perhaps consider not doing so in future

    Having seen the diagrams, I've got to ask, what exactly did you wire up wrong?

    Both those seem very similar. Left has two extra terminals for connecting to Pin 12, and the right shows an E-stop switch, a power switch, and a DC jack, however the basic connections are the same.

    I accidentally connected the two wires from the motor to the top two rather than the bottom. Also if i hadn't got that bit wrong i was still left with not knowing where to connect the emergency stop wires as the part supplied is minus the connector shown in the parts check list.

    To be honest if gocnc weren't so bad at answering your emails and showed a bit more interest in helping out customers then i would have taken time out to double check things.
    At the end of the day they should understand that this type of kit is probably going to be sold to the inexperienced hobby user, so i feel that if your going to update parts you should supply idiot proof instructions as we're not all electronic geniuses.

    Ok guys after finally getting my machine built and running ive now discovered that the software that comes with the usb control box with this kit will only run files that are HPGL format.
    I only need to do cut outs etc in flat plate, so can anyone recommend a nice simple to use program that i can use to create the dxf and add the machinings to. I was hoping to use something like Vcarve but i dont think it saves as a HPGL file.

    Cheers for that.
    I did try the trail software and its perfect for what i need, just wasn't sure it would save in the format i need. Think I'll take the plunge and buy the 2D desktop version.
