I'll either be using Bart's driver card and Mach3 or a DSP controller. The parts I need to cut have about a sixteen inch perimeter, made up of twelve straight segments.
Another issue is the time it would take to engrave a simple fill pattern in a one inch square on both the plywood and acrylic. Would one of the controllers have an advantage over the other?
