    Mach3 or grbl in terms of software? And why?
    For a 6 axis cnc machine that is dual spindle and must be capable of double sided fsw and isf.

    Mach3, because GRBL has a fraction of the features that Mach3 has.
    But I won't use Mach3 on any new machines, as it's obsolete imo.
    I'm using UCCNC going forward, including on a dual spindle router I'm building.

    I'm not aware of any low cost control that supports dual spindles, so a bit of customization is required, depending on how you want them to work.
