    Yes, you can make PNP machine with Mk3 controller.
    Count all axes and IO that you need. PNP machines usually need many and Mk3/4 might not have enough.
    TNG software is certainly capable of all tasks that PNP needs.

    I'm not aware of any existing project published.
    You'll have to do this yourself. We are here to help.

    As I told you, there are no tutorials that I'm aware of for building PNP with PlanetCNC TNG.
    You'll have to make all macros/subprocedures yourself.

    Still finding things before buying things.

    Can you please advise if controller can work with Open PnP its an open source pick and place software getting popular very quickly they do not have their own controller mostly 3rd party controllers are used.
