Hi Folks, Did you manage to get this working?
The project has stalled ! work has stopped play
I could really do with some help to carefully strip the old boards out help wire in new boards and drivers.
Anyone fancy helping with the project ?
I’m happy to help but electronic skills are a bit basic so if you don’t mind guiding me, I’m up for the challenge
I’d be available to help out with this too if you need the hands.
I take it there is no dongle and possibility of running on the original software?
Hi Chris, thanks for the offer.
Short version of progress to date !
Dongle cost £300 and not sure they would sell us one anyway (SW out of date and unsupported), current electronics are old and very poor but machine good, machine needs a strip out and replacement electronics, need volunteers to take charge due to lack of my time currently…
Most recent Galaad update was 4th Feb 2019 so still looks supported.
I think it is possible to trial without payment.
"Limited trial without licence: if you do not have a Galaad licence, then the automatic milling and the export of files will be limited to 10 design items, each one having a maximum of 50 co-ordinates. This should allow you to test the machine drive in real conditions. "
The boards may however be old and slow compared to modern stuff. (I’ve only done profiling and pocketing on mine in the last 10 yrs)
I’d be happy to help with this.
