Hi everyone! I'm a total newbie in this part of the CNC-world, and would very much appreciate your feedback. Currently I have a Stepcraft 600 series 1 with a Kress 800 spindle. I draw everything I make in VCarve Pro 7.5. The files are then exported in a WinPC-NC format. The Stepcraft is controlled by a laptop running WinPC-NC. This setup has worked well, but it seems the MiniMill is able to mill rounder circles at a faster speed. Since I got a "birthday discount" I put in this order: $129.98 1 × CNC xPRO V3 Controller Stepper Driver This product cannot be reordered because it's out of stock. Checkbox 379269 label $39.95 3 × NEMA 23 Stepper Motor - High Torque Series Checkbox 379270 label $418.95 1 × OpenBuilds MiniMill Add 3 NEMA 23 Stepper Motors?: No Add 24V Power Supply?: Yes Checkbox 379272 label $9.99 1 × Spindle/Router LED Light Ring I plan to get either a DeWalt or Bosch spindle. So to my questions: 1) Can I still use VCarve, or do I need additional software? 2) Is the controller a good controller for the motors? The regular 23s were out of stock. 3) Which GUIs for controlling the CNC can run on a very old Win98 laptop? I'm really excited about getting into this part of the "trade". I'm going on a trip to the US late Feb and will pick it up at the hotel before I return home. A full build thread will follow.
