Re: MODELA MDX-3

All support on development of drivers ended in 2005 and 2007, hence no support to later Windows. Maybe a USB Parallel could work on the MDX-3, PIX-3 needs a Serial cable and the USB/Serial adaptors never worked in my opinion. They looked like they did and then stopped. If you find a way, then I am s...

Re: MDX40- A flip problem

Hope it helps, starting at the basics always helps.

Re: SRP Player not enough memory error - HELP

Model Size and Preferences settings. Models can have excess polygons, hidden features not being used, so optimise your model before exporting the STL. This will save memory required of the PC and speed of calculation. Someone gave us an STL with 2.8Million polygons and it had all the internal electr...

Re: MDX-40A and SRP questions

Just a couple of quick answers. 1. Yes you can use multiple tools, SRP Player will prompt you to do the manual tool change and set your next tool to the same Z0 with the Z0 Sensor. 2. Make the SRP material larger that your actual material, the sw will cut to that size, it cannot see your real materi...

Re: MDX-15 or MDX-20 Driver question.

I think the CD's are very old and were per machine, hence it was probably the cause of the conflicting messages.
Our rolanddg.com site is the originator for all things like this..

Re: Roland Safety Key Connector? PNC-3200

Hi, I do not know the pin connections, but I may have a solution for you, but as it is a very old machine I cannot really put it here.
