Re: Autodesk Fusion 360 with Roland DG milling machines

SRM-20 replaced MDX-15/20, however, MDX-15/20 worked in 0.025mm steps in RML only.
SRM-20 works in 0.01mm steps, same as MDX-40.
Use MDX-40 post format in the machine selection.
It will make the right sizes on your SRM-20.

The MDX500 is of a pre USB day, so a parallel port is looking to the pc for the same. Called LPT1 etc. Adaptors do not always work.
