    Thanks again every body for your excellent advice, I now have my 4 axis CNC foam cutter up and running, and its fantastic, I am now building a 3 Axis table machine for cutting balsa and ply for my model aircraft. I ended getting a Gecko G450 and a UC100 motion controller, fairly expensive all up, but works so very well, (so glad didn't get the Cheap ebay stuff).

    I am runnning Mach3 and UCCNC software in a virtual machine on my MacBook Pro (parallels), I generate all my G-Code (which was great fun learning about) with devFoam Wing for the 4axis Foam cutter and Sketchup with Sketchucam 'plug in' for all other stuff and for when I run my foam cutter in 2 axis slaved mode.

    Definitely a great working setup for me, especially being able to run on my Mac. with no problems at all.



    I made my controller box modular, so I can move it from machine to machine and as the Gantries on the foam cutter are adjustable in width, I just need to add or take away extension leads for the motors and home and limit switches.

    Once again thanks very much guys.
