    You will definitely need to "just" configure the controller.Not many CAM programs will have a generic 5 axis post processor and unless you have an amount of experience with CNC machining of some sort you have a mountain to climb.I suggest you post your intended machine design and invite comments from people who understand the realities of construction machines and connecting controllers.There is help to be had.

    I have already manufactured two cnc machines with only 3 axes, but I always used mach3 to work
    .
    I want to manufacture a cnc with 5 axes, which I need a program

    with these movements as in the image

    Brief description of this incredible cheep panel looks good. The question is if there is detailed specification available? What are axis accuracy following errors, for instance? It is possible that the panel is able to carry laser head only.
