do not have the latest software for emc. I believe Sherline picked a
package some time ago, and continue to ship that. Being a hardware
company it would be asking a lot to expect them to keep up with all the
latest software version changes.
And just to throw another option on the table, there is a windows based
cnc control package that will do everything you need. Being based on
windows it may be easier to deal with if you are not already a linux
users. It is fully compatible with Sherline and many Sherline owners use it.
Mach3 for windows does cost $175, and is fully supported with a user
mail list on yahoo and a forum at machsupport.com
