    How do you interface the joysticks and buttons?

    the PlanetCnC Mk 3 Controller has input connectors on the board which you can hardwire to a joystick instead of a jogging keyboard.

    Wow, Wow, Wow - joys sticks just have to be a great option.
    How are you managing heat/cooling from the enclosed space.
    Looking forward to seeing how you developed/built the electronics interface for all this!

    Great idea there Iwan. I might try that myself. :thumbsup:
    I see you have one small fan already, but there is room for a couple of computer fans each side, for a filtered "in" and "out" across the boards. :)
    Things could get quite hot in there on a long run, and that would deal with any possible overheating.
    Also, how are you getting on with the Planet CNC Mk3 Controller? I think I'm going to use one of those on my new build.

    Thanks Grey. Yes I already organized more fans to add to my box. So far I am very pleased with the MK3 Controller, it gives you a lot of options to adjust to your needs.
