Thread: Output direct to machine
Does anyone know what breakout cards are comparable with Vectric's ability to output direct to cnc machine?
Thanks for your help
Thanks Gerry, I thought that Vectric's software was able to comunicate with the breakout board directly

The BOB's role is mainly to make connections to motors and input/outputs etc easier, they can also provide some protection to your parallel port by using Opto isolators. They can do other things also but essentially all they do is pass along signals and control nothing.
The Vectric output to machine stills needs some in between software or driver to translate the G-code into Movement. Essentially all it's doing is saving you loading the G-Code into what ever control software runs the machine. The BOB has nothing to do with this other than pass along signals from the control software.
