Hope I'm posting to the right area. I've been bitten by the CNC bug and have spent about a month reading, searching, and watching videos until I'm getting blurry eyed. I'm in the sign business and can see areas where a CNC Router could allow me to offer additional products. I've been working with computers since 1962. I taught computer education at the high school and community college level for more than 32 years. I have experience with Adobe Illustrator, SignLab and other 2D software. I've watched complete builds of the OX over and over and believe I'm capable of doing the build. I'm impressed with what looks like a very strong, substantial and well designed machine. I want to build one so bad I'm getting a rash. A friend of mine purchased a Shapeoko 3 recently, assembled it and is just getting a feel for it. Here's my dilemma... I would prefer to have an OX with maybe a 1000mm capacity. But, the Shapeoko 3XL comes with all the electronics and, what I gather, is basic proprietary CAD/CAM software to get up and running. Basically all you need is a computer to get started. I'm certainly willing to purchase more powerful CAD/CAM software once I become more experienced and find the need. I've downloaded and tested several 2.5D product's trial versions already and feel comfortable that any of those would meet my needs. I understand that the OX is a "mechanical" package. Once I've built the machine all I can do is sit back and say "Man... what a beautiful machine" and then dust it off once in a while. What I'm trying hard to find is an "electrical package" that will allow me to have a usable OX to connect to my computer. I don't feel qualified to locate, let alone wire/connect compatible Arduinos, grbls, Tiny-Gs, Chillipepprs, power supplies, controller boards and the list goes on. So, I'm asking if someone could give me guidance to close the gap between a great mechanical machine and a USB port on my computer. This would allow me to order the OX instead of the Shapeoko 3XL. I'll put a stamp on this and send it off hoping I'm not asking the impossible. Thanks for your attention.
