New Acorn 6 axis

Centroid just recently released a new 6 axis controller. USA only sales for now.

Thanks for the news @TMToronto . I’ve thought about an Acorn upgrade, but probably not going to take the leap yet. This would open up even more possibilities. Definitely a jump in price though too.

It adds up as well quickly, especially if one wants a truly 5 axis CNC, as it requires significant added software and hardware costs.

I’ve appreciated seeing your posts about your build. Gives me plenty of food for thought. Would like to try something similar, someday …

Anyone have an idea for a relatively inexpensive 4 axis controller replacement that would not be a huge amount of work? Does such a thing exist?

I would have the same question, looking for a new controller

I’ve been looking at UCCNC, with an UC300ETH, which is less than $200. Still need drivers and a little more stuff - and a PC to run it on (which I have plenty of). The hardest part is wiring and mounting sensors (no stall homing). I want to do this primarily to get a true rotary axis set up - and for a fun shop project!
