My first Masso build


Model and Toolmaking
I am starting my first CNC build using a Masso control. I have retrofitted a few machines in the past. Mostly using Mach3 software. Issues with old computers and USB to parallel port converters left me looking at other options. I tried Kmotion on a servo system. I did not care for the user interface and tuning servos is a pain (at least for me, self taught). My favorite way is AC drivers and steppers that are as big as I can fit on the machine. I never had a problem with steppers being to big as long as the limit switches are working.

I have a machine shop with 4 CNC mills. From a tiny Maxnc that I use for EDM electrodes to a 30 x 20 x 20 Bed mill. I mostly do small tool work; I use a lot of 3/64 end mills.

The Masso looks to be an easy way to go.

Thanks for sharing your experience and you are right, steppers are great specially if setup and used properly, we have clients running production jobs with steppers without any issues.
