You can run Mach3 from a 64 bit machine... you need a smoothstepper board for USB.
Can you please post the picture of this type of machine you have built for 1/2 or less?
I think I paid a reasonable price for this quality of a machine Made in the USA
- But I could not design this strong of a machine that I have purchased and have all the hard parts machined and the machine up and running For less then I paid.
If you have friends that have the type of machines that made this machine you are a lucky individual, and I am sure you could make it for less.
I do not live close to these type of friends. Shipping and prototyping would of cost me a fortune to get just one of these made-
also why spend the energy to build and design something already out there to be bought. I like designing airplanes, not machines that make them.
Thanks for your help,
