I'm likely not going down the Linux road unless I can find a nice freshly paved one. But, I'm open to looking at possibilities.

I don't see a way to purchase PathPilot on their site currently. I...

PMDX-424? I am pretty sure I saw one in a current build. That brings up Mach4, which is a whole other issue.

I get that it's for smaller amperage draw (which would suggest Nema23 motors), but if the motors are within the amperage limits and work with a belt drive system....I don't see the problem. I'm by...

I haven't completely sorted the drawer unit out, but it...
