Re: [!! SPAM] [CAMM-3] Software ?
- VisualMill and Protowizard can both write toolpaths for 3rd and 4th axis for the MDX-40.To actually run the machine a program included with the mill called DROPOUT.EXE must be used. It is actually a printer driver that writes programs to the MDX-40 buffer. One outputs the toolpaths using the MDX-40 POST from either program (prn extension) and that is then manually loaded into DROPOUT.EXE via the DROPOUT.EXE dialogue box. Right, the MDX-40 behaves as a printer working in 3 dimensions... hey, it works... :)Jeffrey Everett----- Original Message -----From: Dave MuchaSent: Friday, September 28, 2007 4:51 PMSubject: Re: [!!

Maybe I'm missing something ??
you lay out the parts in a CAD, but what do you use to run the machine ?
I take it VisualMill and ProtoWizard can run the mill as a 3 axis CNC
