Andrew said in a mail about edge finders "I have a slow one that I use as the DNC interface to my Bridgeport Interact 1 running Win2K."
I would be interested to know about your setup. I have a Bridgeport series 2 MDI. I cant seem to get a cable that works between the controller ( Heidenhain TNC 145 ) and the tape deck. Plenty of drawings and cable configurations, and cables !! but the data does not seem the flow between the two.
I would also like to connect a PC, and to use some sort of software that can be used to draw the item being machined, convert to machine code, and then upload/download and save various programmes.
Any help or advice gratefully received
