vr milling v2 with nextmove controller

Post by donm0098 » Tue 12 Sep , 2017 17:38 pm

I have a triac PC that has been upgraded to work with USB.

Does VR milling version 2 work with the triac USB upgrade? I can communicate with the controller card via the USB and the serial port OK using mint workbench and denford easy upgrade software. They identify the card as a nextmove st. But VR milling version 2 does not find the mint controller.

Will I need to get VR milling version 5? Or can I reflash the controller to work with VR milling version 2?

VRMilling version 2 should work a NextStep card/ You will need to select an NS machine type.

Thanks for your help Martin. Changing the machine to TriacNS fixed the communication problem.
