    Right now, we are still very flexible. If you have any special feature requests, now is the best time to ask!
    In principle many things could still be added and more types of machines could be supported.

    Feel free to ask.

    Hi Benedikt,
    Please update us with how things are going when you make some progress.

    The main feature if possible for the router type machines will be to auto square the gantry. Which implies that A should be able to be linear like Y, the 2 long axis on router. For the moment i have connected 2 drives at the Y and works without a glitch, so that scenario is proven.

    Next thing probing on X and Y , similar like Z probing, would be interesting.

    For that money i dont expect much more, if one wants rigid tapping and similar, he must look at the 500-1500 controllers. I am quite happy with the price and what it is.

A question i have though, is how do you program a zero button for this unit? That is, push an external button and all axis' are zeroed?
    Thats how i have it. Push a button and all zeroes/ the DRO/. Not that the machine starts a zeroing procedure.

    Yes, but how is it done? How do you wire it up? What are the connections?

    Just as a side note: I watched again a nice video where a guy have made the controller like a pendant. As i said in comments of video, i wish i have come up earlier with that idea. Now i have to go back and forth on my big machine, instead of taking the pendant with me.

    Been working on this for a few months now. Trying to find a nice way to mount the controller. Didn't come up to bad albeit with a few mods to the PC case.
    There's one more power supply to go in for the spindle motor.

    Once that's done i'll be up and running :)

    Not bad. Very nice!

    What drives are that? Do you have cooler in front of enclosure near them ? Or just the enclosure other coolers?

    Thanks Boyan,
    The drivers are just generic Chinese brand set to half step.
    At the moment i only have one fan at the rear blowing in... i will replace this with a bigger fan soon and would like to use some smaller ones near the drivers. This is still a work in progress.

    Hi there, im currently designing my own CNC Router, i had planned to use this controller. On my longest /Axis (X Axis here in the UK) i have Dual Ballscrews and 4nm Nema23's, i see it has already been mentioned that the controller cannot provide individual homing for each screw (by utilizing the A Axis). I see there are examples of the controller providing signal to each of the drivers, im just wondering if i am likely to encounter any problems with the gantry running out of tram using this method? I plan to use the AM882 drivers.

    Thanks

    Alex
