Wireless Mach3 Control

mach3-androidStefano wrote in recently to share his creation, a wireless interface for Mach3 CNC control software using an Android phone.  Although there doesn’t seem to be acomodation for it (yet) in the app, something like this would be especially useful in conjunction with a webcam or other way to remotely monitor your setup.

A description and installation instructions are available here.  They are written in Stefano’s native Italian.  If you don’t converse in this tongue, you will need to use a translation service.

If you’re curious as to how this works, there’s a video of it in the same place that you can find the instructions.  Unfortunately, I don’t have an Android phone to use this with, but if any of you try this out, please let me know what you think in the comments.

  1. Hi,
    You can find this app. on the android market. Install it and read in the description, there you\ll find a link to the addon you have to install on your pc in order to enable the communication between the phone and the pc. I have tested it.
    It works, even the free version works with limitation that you can only start stop running the program and the actual coordinates are displayed on the phone screen.
    I have expected the phone to communicate with the pc connected with lan cable to router which has wifi but it is necessary the pc to have a wireless antenna *in case it is not a wireless enabled device.
