Duet 3 for a CNC router



  • Hello any of you using a duet 3 for a CNC router? I’m looking at getting an open builds LEAD or workbee and I’m wondering if using the duet 3 is a good idea?

    Thanks for your input.



  • I used a Duet3 to replace a Gecko G540 I had running on a Chinese "3040" CNC router running NEMA23.

    Admittedly there were things LinuxCNC and the G540 did better, but all in all I preferred the Duet and I hope to get back to that project in the not too distant future. There are a few threads on here where some quite experienced users gets into some of the nitty gritty details.

    Weather or not its the "best" fit depends a little on what your other options are?



  • @bearer I’m not too certain what the other options are. There is that black box that open builds sells. And there are some other things that run Mach4 on Amazon.
