    So the router tables being built here and run with mach3 are all 2.5d ?

    No they can be either.
    It all depends on the code they are fed.

    Mach is capable of 3D linear moves.

    I have some g code experience as i have an old Ikegai lathe with a fanuc 6t control on. Also used a mini mill but only as a production machine. Never got the chance to play with it and its now gone.

    Would like to build a plasma / router combo 4' x 4' . Have been watching Tribbles link with great interest. Would that convert to plasma ?

    I have a decent work shop with a bridgeport vertical mill ( manual) TIG and MIG so have got the gear. Pretty good with PC's but limited electrical experience. Also know my way around solid works.

    I guess i'm just trying to convince myself to "have a go"!

    You can't have a decent workshop if you have a Bridgeport :whistling:
