    A Friend of mine gave me  his Mach3  and what I was wondering is what is needed to make it work on Mpcnc.

    You’ll need a breakout board, maybe ethernet smoothstepper, and individual drivers, and some time to wire it all up.

    Thanks. If your computer does not have a parallel port  you can”t use it. Isee why he gave it to me . is there anyway to use it without the parallel port like an adapter or something.

    I mentioned the Ethernet smoothstepper. It uses the Ethernet port instead of parallel port.

    You didn’t mention what computer you are using. If it is not a laptop, then you can purchase a parallel port extension card, they are pretty cheap.

    If it’s a laptop, then I don’t think you can, so you’ll probably need to buy a USB breakout board.
