Mach3 Configuration files added

I've had some requests for the Mach3Mill.xml file so that people could more easily match my Mach3 settings. The .xml file can now be downloaded from the download page. Just place the .xml file in your Mach3 folder replacing your Mach3Mill.xml file.

A review of DTRobotic's Jog It!

Hey everyone, I had the opportunity to beta test the new version of the "Jog It!" cnc pendant and thought I would share my experiance. Many of you may have seen the original version while it was on kickstarter. Well the new version is slimmer and has some new features. My favorite is the magnet that lets you hang your remote anywhere on your machine. Check out the video and see how it works with our laser converter board. If you are interested in your own Jog It!, you can buy the original here. For more information on the guys behind the Jog It! visit DTRobotics.

We have stock.....for now....

Laser Converter Board with solder paste

 Hey everyone, the Laser Converter boards are back in stock. I've had a lot of people messaging me about when the boards are going to be back in stock so I'm guessing they will go fast. Not to worry though, the next (much larger) batch is being made as I'm typing this.

Air assist and new post processor

Recently I have been wanting to start cutting thicker material with my laser cutter, but I knew I needed to get my air assist running to get the cut quality I wanted. I didn't have much free time so it kept getting put on the back burner. This is where Kevin from KitchenSinkElectronics comes in. He has been using my laser converter board and decided he was going to get the air assist feature on the newer version of boards up and running. He cleaned up my CamBam laser post processor and added the commands to run the air assist. Once I had his new post processor I decided it was time to do a quick tutorial on how to set everything up.

We've learned a lot.........

Moshiboard V4.1
Whew! What a crazy month! On December 13th our laser converter board was featured on HackADay, since that time we have had nearly 17,000 hits on ChrisCircuits.com. The response from the DIY/hacking community has been amazing. We have sold out twice and the requests are still coming.
