Please Note: These machines connect to a computer through their controller box with a parrallel cable (both included). It is not recommended to connect to a notebook through a parrallel port as the power saving features tend to interrupt the data flow. It is also not recommended to connect to a computers with 64 bit versions of Windows due to problems with the Parrallel port driver.
These issues are detailed and fully explained on the Mach3 Software website.
Additional "Smooth Stepper" controller boards (connecting via USB) are available that sit between the routers' control box and the computer, which our customers have found to work without problems with notebooks running Windows 7. Available here
