The Ultimate CNC is a machine control software using boards with Arduino. This kind of boards use Grbl or something similar (its depends on your CNC machine provider). These boards use external hardware to generate signals to produce coordinated motion on up to 3 machine axes. Common hardware required could be something like it:
Moving objects like machine axis and machine parts can be dangerous and could cause personal injury or even death. Please keep this always in mind and operate your machine carefully keeping all safety standards and regulations first.
The minimal hardware requirements:
The above is the recommended minimal values, however, the software may run on PCs with lower resources, but we do not advise doing so. Also, you need to consider that if large G-code files with the hundreds of thousands or millions of code lines count are run then the requirements may be higher. As a reference, a G-code program with 2 billion lines can use about 500Mb. RAM.
This software requires Microsoft Windows, macOS, or Linux Operating System running on an x64 desktop or laptop, or tablet computer.
Depends on your device or your CNC machine, some features can't work correctly. Talk with your provider if something is missing, or there are some incompatibility.
The Ultimate CNC software comes in a single executable installer package.
You need to download the installer package for your operating system (Windows, macOS, or Linux).
Ultimate CNC offers a free version. Then, if like it, contact with your CNC supplier to get a PRO release.
The free version has some limited functions but enough for a hobbyist.
If you already have the full release of Ultimate CNC Pro, you will need to install the key from your partner.
