Just picked up a Dahlgren SYS-2516 Engraver. Completely new to this, but for $200 I figured it was a steal. It is completely operational as far as I can tell. All axis move freely and smoothly and spindle spins nicely. My question is will this software control this machine and how exactly I communicate with it. The control box has a serial port labeled com1 on the back so I would assume I would connect and communicate through this serial port. I know this sounds like it should be pretty straight forward, but I am just looking for some confirmation that I am heading in the right direction before I damage anything. Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated and I thank you in advance.
Have a great day.
