Hand Held Controller?

HI Jonathan,

I just purchased a new Axiom CNC Pro 8 for my classroom. This CNC operates using a hand held Controller. Our first CNC router is operated by a laptop. Can you recommend a site that teaches the use of a hand held controller. I want to be confident next fall when I introduce our students to our new router. I also would like if you can recommend a site that contains cutter stats I can up load in to Aspir 8.5.

Thank you.

Hi Mark,

It looks like the controller is just an interface. You would follow all the same steps in this class, post-process the code, then move that over to the controller with a USB stick. I would imagine it's pretty straightforward- there are probably preview, run, pause, stop commands, etc.

My advice is to set it up and play around with the controller a bit. then try to run a small file. You should ask them if they have a post processor for Fusion, although generic g-code will probably work regardless.
