Might be the Servo Mini Mill, don't remember, have to dig out the
literature. I can do that if you're really interested.
The programs I run on the Roland CAMM-3 are written in whatever cad/cam
program I happen to be using at the time (CadKey NC, Cutting Edge,
MasterCam, etc...). These NC programs have an auxillary program called a
*post processor* that takes the code (APT for instance) from the NC
program and translates it into a language that the *controller* on the
chosen mill can understand. You can create a design in CorelDRAW or any
graphics program that exports it in a DXF file format because most cad
programs will import dxf. Some desktop NC machines can undestand HPGL
code (for 2-D only) which CorelDRAW for instance can export and on some
machines like the Roland, you can PRINT the file to the machine.

Think there's a 2nd line business in this? What are your programs written
in or does it have an accompanying language??
