Emco Compact 5 CNC and Mach 3

Post by Adirondack » Sun May 10, 2020 12:22 pm

Hi folks. I’ve just purchased a Compact 5 CNC running via Mach 3 and a tethered laptop. Has anyone gotten the tool change turret to work with Mach 3? I was told "you can write a macro", but that is not my forte.

A little locomotive with 4 wheels on the track is a lot more fun
than a 1/4 finished one with 16 wheels on the bench!
