New to the Centroid family

Post by jcarver » Mon Dec 04, 2017 12:21 pm

Hello everyone,

Yesterday I purchased the Acorn board. I'm new to CNC's in general and just recently built a PM25MV with 620oz Clearpath SDSK servos. Like many I defaulted to Mach3 only to get fed up spending more time troubleshooting than actually making parts :( . In my search for a more commercial based software I found Centroid and their new Acorn board. Once I get the board I'll post up the results of my switch.

Here's a picture of her, admittedly a little dirty.
