Pauses or temp locks while dripping code, even if position is not lost, is problem on 3D surface because it leaves mark which wreck the job or at best cause extra work hand finishing.
    Dripping from USB isn't always reliable and RS232 just defeats the point of stand alone Controller. All these things have to be tested and influence the final outcome.!! . . . . Unfortunately again we are back to Cracking open the Good or Bad Egg.? . . . Could smell sweet or Stink like John's week old under crackers. .
    I start to feel after reading a coupler of control manuals that its important what speed USB pen drive or card is fitted there, hence they sell the controller with certain USB card .

    What you make of that / that's the 1000 series controller/:

    l Be able to process up to 1000 blocks of program per second, which makes the high-speed & mini-line cutting available.
    l Equipped with U-disk port through which CNC systems provide the following functions: store and recover systems’ software and machining data, perform DNC machining by executing a program in U-disks.

    Boyan I never assume anything.! . . . More important I take what is written with pinch of salt, esp if written by the Chinese.! Which is why I have box full of cards etc.

    When I get hold of the controller and fitted to working machine I'll give report back.

    To answer your question from before the reason for the 1000 series was because I asked for controller best suited to Router and this was recommended.

    Hi folks,

    Today i managed to make a short video of very interesting combination. DIY CNC +ESTL CAM trochoidal path + HSMAdvisor + DDSCV1.1 motion controller .



    Mind me that it's first the time ever i use trochoidal toolpath, am testing the vacuum fixture and the board at the same time. So i was a bit afraid and limited the plunge rate, so i could react, cause i had the camera at my left hand. Thats why at the moment of entering the program i was trying to make sure i do not make a mistake.

    All was perfectly calculated by HSMAdviser and executed by ETSL Cam. Thumbs up to the makers of these 2 programs. Look at that nice chips. So CAM +motion control here together cost less than 200 euro. At the moment ESTL cam starts showing properly the toolpaths as a list - as any normal program, I will be extremely happy to say:" Why pay more for Vectric?" . Even so its an excellent program. If only for the V carving and the Trochoidal toolpaths.

    So i am more than happy. Freud 2 flute 19mm bit, 11mm depth pocket, then full depth 19mm profile . Both at 16000mm/min feed 5.8% or 27.8% degrees HSM width of cut

    I was really excited to see the machine move and cut so smoothly at 16000mm/min, i dont know if you will get to feel it from the video, but it was super smooth. Mass of gantry is around 200kg!

    OK. here is the video. I show how the board copes with probing also. Lower the volume and enjoy, when you feel bored from watching the pocketing, at min 7:15 start the slotting at full depth:

    UCCNC next

    Again hardly any information other than a video of threading with a felt tipped pan. The hardware manual is 21 pages long 19 of which tell you how to connect it up to the ethernet port, [ is it THAT hard ? and if it is WHY ? ]
    I'm moving from Mach3 to UCCNC for my next router, and just got my UC300ETH the other day. Connecting to the ethernet was very simple. Just go into the adaptor settings on the PC, and enter the UC300 address (10.10.10.10) and subnet. That was all I had to do to connect.

    TP from the Mach3 forum is pushing CNC Drive to bring UCCNC to be comparable to Mach3 feature wise. It's already close, and getting better with each release.

    I've got the UC300 in an M44 motherboard from CNC4PC, and I'll be using their C62 breakout board which works with 24V inputs. If needed I can add an additional 24V input and output board (M27/M28 I think).

    The UC300, M44 and C62 is about $370 US. The other two boards are an additional $40 each.
    The UCCNC license was free with an introductory offer on the UC300ETH until Oct 15, or the first batch runs out.
