Did anyone try Deskproto with Puremotion yet?
I only looked through the russian manual yet but the g-code differences to Mach3 are very few.

They have a promotion and since I use an ethernet based Purelogic controller board I get a STANDARD license for free.
Contrary to MACH3 it seems to handle mm/s feedrates on movements that include a rotary axis. I'd like to give that a try.

... I got an english installation manual and it doesn't seem to ask where in XYZ the A axis is. So the sales representative may have misunderstood my question or the answer of the technicians.

Ok, it only does the "assumed diameter" thing that MACH3 already does and even that only in the PRO version.
I'll not give it a try and stick with MACH3 and the inverse time Deskproto now offers.

That should work fine: so far we received mostly positive comments on this new feature. Happy that we managed to add it :-)

Hello Marcus, Lex,
I also orderd the Russian Hardware, thesoftware is lifetime free ( at this moment! )
We also want to start in august with the puremotion software till this moment we always used the winnpcnc (profesional) , PCdreh or the CS-Lab hardware.
Now we want to investigate, what the best solution is for us as team.
We have several students who can try a lot with this software
We are aspecial interested in the 4th drive and huge demensions.
Then we also have to make a decision for hard- and software for the lathe.
