    Hi All

    My first post so please be gentle and I apologise if this is in the wrong place.

    I am finishing of an Ooznest CNC OX build with the CNC xPro controller. All OK so far. I'm thinking of a main controller box and would like to have a (or 3) dispaly(s) for the 3 axis positions... So at the home position the display(s) would read 0 ,0 ,0 and change with the position of the tool head...

    Is it possible, bearing in mind I'm mechanically based rather than electronics, and if so how do I do it...?

    Thanks in advance for your time and help...

    Hi SkyDyno,
    Generally, the machine position will display in the control software run by the computer connected to the xpro. Is there any specific reason for having a seperate position display at the control box?

    Joe, thank you for your reply and sorry for not getting back sooner.... Not really. If it was something easily done then I'd add the 3 displays but I have a sneaking suspicion that it's not, so will probably leave it.
