Chris, I hope that factory is paying you a generous consulting fee for doing there bug smashing and development.

RotarySMP?!?!? Hey dude! We chatted 8 years ago when I was doing my Harbor Freight 7x10 CNC build:

Hope you're doing well. Interwebz, small world!

Hi Bill,

Glad to see you are still making stuff as well. What are you using the DDCSV for? I got mine to finish the little mill I started back years ago, but then a MAHO 400E came up, so that project is again on the back burner.

Hey Mark,

I built a CNC router (X-carve). It's working pretty well for that, although I would like a more robust CNC controller. The DDCSV is great, but I do wish they'd release an updated, improved model of it.

Ok everyone,

Here is the latest firmware with updated English for the new features and a new motion planning algorithm. This is far smoother and adds line 113 and 123, its now leveraging the FPGA for ARC interpolation, and resolution can now be set to 0.001 on line 123. X,Y,Z can all now have different steps per mm and produce a correct arc. To try this set line 113 to software and line 123 to .001 try some code with line 113 on and off and let me know. The new motion will not stop/pause for transitions from g01 to g03 making a smooth CV like path.

I believe you just extract the zipped file onto a USB drive, insert into the controller (turned off), then power up the controller.

BTW John, love your bearded dragon!! <3  I've got an iguana myself.

I think I worked it out,  copied the contents to the Data folder of the origional install ,  all seems to be OK now,  have the new settings showing   :D

Dragon was my Grandaughter's,  she had about 20 various lizards.

Limited testing, but does seem smoother and does allow me to use 300 ppm   :thumbup:
