Dear Centroid Team

Would be great read here about estimated release date of Acorn Six and Hickory?
And second big ask about predicted additional features in which will be armed new CNC controllers?

greetings from Poland

Hello. Andrezej,

seems like everytime we put out an estimate on product release it seems to cause more issues than good.:-) covid put some road blocks in front of us with both these projects but we are working around them!
and on other news Acorn Plasma will soon be in the public beta phase, very exciting performance from our new THC kit to go with the Acorn, videos will be released soon.
thanks for checking in,
Keith

@cnckeith I am excited that the plasma support will be coming out soon. I started a DIY cnc plasma table build back in 2017. I had the motion control working with a smoothstepper and MACH 3. THC was a big issue and I never got past it. That is when I shifted focus and converted a PM30 mill to CNC using an Acorn board. I've been patiently waiting for an Acorn plasma solution so I can continue the plasma table build.

I did two conversion: lathe and mill from Wabeco both but I'm waiting for something which is cheaper then OAK but has more encoder inputs than Acorn. I believe that Acorn Six or Hicory will be proper one for me.

greetings

Andrzej
