There is the THC version that works with any branch of Linuxcnc, even the very old ones, and works with THCAD also, so having external offset branch is not a requirement for THC.


Yes, I did mention BigJohnT somewhere (well I hope I did!). So his config is here gnipsel.com/shop/plasma/plasma.xhtml

You have mentioned all of them in a thread somewhere lately, that is nice.
In this case it sounded like there is no other option except using external offsets branch for THC, but there are several.

I did mention them all in my first reply
Tommylight also has a good system that has recently been adapted to use Mesa and the THCAD instead of the Proma150 he uses in europe.

BigJohnT also has a config which was probably the original mesa config.

Islander261 has got a good robust working PID based system that he says easilly exceeds the performance of his previous commercial controller.

I've been using an experimental branch

So I ordered the j1900 brix and a stick of 4gb SO-DIMM DDR3L 1333 made by corsair. I then shot over to mesa website and went to order the THCAD10 as well as the 7i76e but the 7i76e is out of stock. It seams like most of there step/IO boards are out of stock. Is this normal and do thy get them back in stock quickly?
