Mach4 Information: Mach4 is our newest version of CNC motion control software. While the core software is completed, it will take time to complete all of the software plug-ins that allow Mach4 to communicate with specific hardware devices. OEMs and equipment manufacturers that have committed resources to developing their software plug-ins, will be the first to take advantage of Mach4's benefits. Much of the development of the plug-ins is completed by the manufacturer of the hardware.
For this reason, Mach3 will continue to be sold for a year or more, while the number of compatible hardware devices is expanded through plug-in development.
Mach4 is completely new software and has less than 1% of the programming code in common with Mach3. It was written from the ground up to be expandable, flexible, and extremely responsive for use with very large files on any operating system; including Windows, Apple, and Linux. While there was only one version of Mach3, Mach4 will be offered in different versions (not including the many customized OEM versions.
