Mach3 CNC Controller software will convert your PC into a fully functional 6 axis CNC Controller. Mach3 is one of the most popular CNC Controllers for both DIY and Industrial machines. Mach3 works on most Windows PC’s to control the motion of motors (stepper & servo) by processing G-Code.

Mach3 is a feature rich program which is also easy to use. It works with other programs and will import DXF files, generate G-Code, fully customizable. Works with CNC Routers, Milling Machines, Lathes, Plasma Cutters and Lasers.

If you are here on this page now it is because you want to make your CNC machine work faster and more reliably.

You want a solution that is proven and you don’t want to waste your time searching the web to find out how to use it.

I KNOW how to make a CNC machine work faster and more reliably, because I have spent years learning how. When I built my first CNC Router it was finicky and unreliable and the software was a pain to work with. It was frustrating back then, because I couldn’t find a PRACTICAL and FEASIBLEway to control my CNC machines on a hobby budget.

I searched everywhere on the web and I got really discouraged. The information I needed was scattered all over the place and I couldn’t find one solution that solved my problem. Until I found Mach3.

I want to save you the pain of learning CNC the hard way like I did. I want you to succeed fast. So I decided to piece together the methods that WORK into one single location so that folks like you and me  can get their CNC machine working without having to sift through all the garbage (thousands of blogs and forums) to find out what works. Mach3 CNC Control software will get you going.
