Re: Techsoft TS400 Main Board - looking for

UPDATE - Roland flatly refuse to give the specs of the motors. This machine was obsolete long ago so what's the problem with giving out useful information? I guess they'd rather users just skip their old machines rather than fix them. I expected more from Roland...

Cheers

Re: RotoCAMM TS-400E - Stopped working - help!

So - I am now the new owner of Bloodtypes faulty machine! :D

I can confirm that it's definitely a faulty main board. Before I strip the machine to do a GRBL/STEPPER conversion - does anyone have a spare MAIN BOARD for TS-400? You never know...

Re: RML-1 programming

Well... It's only taken me 6 years - to the day - to get my head around this! :lol: When using CAM software you don't really need to think about it too much - when your trying get 3rd party Gcode working on an RML-1 only machine working you really do have to think about it.

Re: How many Roland MDX-20 still exist in the world

G-code to RML-1 converter

This would be super handy for all the thousands of older Roland machines out there! Let's bring them back from the brink of obsolescence! :D

If anyone is a bit handy with Visual Studio maybe they could have a look at it?
