    How To Use Mach3 Wizards - OD Taper on DIY CNC Lathe



    Hello. I made a short video on how to generate some Gcode using Mach3 Wizards in Mach3. Quite useful for simple turning operations. I use it sometimes to generate codes for my LinuxCNC based DIY CNC Lathe. I hope this video will help somebody!

    Thanks. Do you prefer LinuxCNC or Mach3?

    I've had Mach3 on my first CNC mill for wood. Worked quite well with a CNC USB board. But LinuxCNC allows for using incremental encoders for spindle which allows for threading operations - this is why I prefer LinuxCNC. Also LinuxCNC seems to work much better on parallel port but this may be affected by using Linux instead of Windows.
