Virtual panel cnc12

Post by Cadman2500 » Sat Jul 15, 2017 3:04 am

I am very interested in using a virtual panel and am reviving a project that I never completed. (Broken ankle, two moves, changed jobs twice, but now i am settled) Can anyone tell me when I can buy this updated software? I own an mpu11/dc3iob kit. Glad I hit the forum to see whats new. Acorn is interesting.

The Virtual Jog Panel is part of CNC12, which should be released along with the Acorn in the very very near future.

Curious to know why you didn't do an All in One DC? I recently did a conversion on a 10x54 knee mill. Went well, slick setup.
Documented the whole thing on my YouTube channel for others to see and learn what's involved. martyscncgarage

Virtual Control Panel is pretty nice, going through beta testing. Acquire a touch screen display so you're ready for it. ASUS VT207N is a nice 19.5" display you can find on line for less than $200

Liviu,
Thanks for the cnc12 details.
I am chuckling about very very. I'll start with what I have and buy when it comes out. It probable that it will release before I am ready to use it at my pace.

Marty,
Back when I started this the all in one was new and I was told the dc3iob had higher capacity. (Amps) So I went old school. This has probably all changed. Thanks for the heads up on your channel and the monitor. I'll give it a look.

I have all the parts to do the job as long as everything survived the moves and being in storage. Going to try and bench test by the end of the week. I have a VFD and an MPG for the build. Exciting times.

Regards,
Chris

Ok so I bought a touch panel and components to put together a mini itx pc. I was fairly clear saying my intention was to use cnc12 on my mpu1/dc3iob, I got a response and a monitor recommendation, now it seems cnc 12 is for achorn only?? Hey guys, i am fairly deep inyo my build. Will I be able to use the virtual panel on my build?! Am i missing something?

No, I understand it will be the next revision for the rest of the line. I believe it's under going testing with that hardware now. Because Acorn was new hardware they concentrated on making it run under CNC12 first.

So it will be out soon, when? Not sure. I'm as anxious as you are. I just finished an All in One DC install on my knee mill. Looking forward to having the virtual control panel on it as well.

The MPU11 based controls will be compatible with CNC12 in the next release. I can't give a firm date (we are still beta testing the Lathe CNC12 version even on Acorn), but it will be available. I understand the frustration with waiting, but we would rather work on it a bit longer than release with possible bugs. As the touch based controls will be moving machinery there are serious safety concerns involved if not done correctly.

Thanks for clarifying. I may have gotten a bit worried after reading the web site when my monitor showed up. Marty I took your recommendation and bought the Asus, seemed to be the best bang for the buck.

Indeed, the ASUS is a good model and under $200.
Every ONCE in awhile you can find refurbs for under $160
