    Deskcnc blues, 3k invested,

    Hello All,

    About 10 years ago, from Imserve, I bought servos, controller system, probe, etc, including extra parts to build a cnc router, and fit my shoreline lathe and mill. One of the reasons for this project was the hope that someday I would have the time to build a brass gear clock from scratch, a life long passion.

    Well the time is here after about a dozen uses, I am dead in the water.

    The Deskcnc software tries twice to make connection and then states "controller detected" but then open software in cam mode with a timed out message.

    As others have said, users of this system are an island on to oneself.

    I am trying hard to figure out how to swap out my Deskcnc controller for a mach 3 or something and still use my servo mothers and drivers?

    Does any have any interesting stories or advice about Deskcnc?

    ...you didn't say what PC o/s you're running... 32 or 64 bit might be a problem with older software too.

    O - hello, thanks for your reply.

    I am using the same exact system as I purchased 10 years ago to run it, it is windows vista 32 bit.

    I just had it running perfectly on it 5 days ago as well as a windows 10 64 bit just to see if it would work, it did.
