    Hello Lee,
    i'm currently working on a software that should control 4 motors for a wire machine using our software, see the software here
    we really would like to sell the software with a dedicated hardware for controlling the 4 stepper and the question is
    if your development could be used as a starting point for this and how much it would cost.
    As you can see, we need 4 motor axis direction control, and we could use some others i/o for heating the wire and limit control.
    if you have interest in this project please contact me at
    Thank you for your time

    In the first place happiness for their project. I am a student that I would like to carry out this badge USB. The problem is that my parallel port is different and therefore I cannot make it. My parallel port is the following one:

    Pin1 X Step
    Pin2 Y Enable
    Pin3 Y Dir
    Pin4 Z Dir
    Pin5 Z Step
    Pin6 Z Enable
    Pin7 X Dir
    Pin8 Y Step
    Pin9 spindle MOTOR
    Pin10 X Home
    Pin11 Y HOME
    Pin12 Z HOME
    Pin13 EStop
    Pin14 X ENABLE
    Pin15 EXPAND
    Pin16 EXPAND
    Pin17 EXPAND
    Pin18 to Pin25 GND

    The Firmware could send me for the PIC 18F4550.

    surely it would be easier to make a custom parallel cable to correct the pinouts rather than rewrite the code?

    Hello Sir.

    sir im having trouble, which program do i need to use to control the leds? I have 8 LEDS in my project. I know how to control them using 8 PINS of the Parallel port and also using the Assembly language to create sequence of each LEDS/PINS., but what i want is, i want to control them using USB. Is this module that you have created can possibly control the LEDs?
    I need your help sir. :(

    Thanks a lot...
