Re: Roland TS-400 - Help - drivers/software

Not tried that. I run it on an XP laptop.
My tech son tells me that it will run locally on Windows 10. Not tried it myself.
What design software are you using?
If you’re an education establishment you’ll probably have Techsoft 2-D Design software. It’ll work with the T-S-400.

Re: Roland TS-400 - Help - drivers/software

I’ve got a TS-400. It’s a great piece of kit. Used it on MDF, soft and hardwoods and aluminium. Works really well. The TS-400 runs on an XP machine. I understand that it’ll also run on Windows 10 but I don’t know how. I’ve got the drivers and VPanel for XP somewhere if you need them, so let me know ...

Re: Roland Techsoft TS30 (Pre MDX40)

Hi Scott, The TS30 is a great piece of kit and very versatile, despite it no longer being supported by either Roland or Techsoft. My suggestion is this: Get a stand-alone XP laptop and keep it off the school network. Install Techsoft 2-D Design on the laptop. Install Techsoft 2-D design on the schoo...

Re: TS-400 - Installing Drivers

Hi Paolo, How's things going with your TS-400? You've probably had one longer than any others on this forum so you've probably achieved more than most users here. I'm curious as to what other users are doing with/making with their TS-400's. It's a great piece of kit, really well made, but there's no...

Re: TS-400 - Installing Drivers

Hi dpenfold.
How's it going now with the TS-400?
I've got one and I'm interested in what other people are doing with their machines.

Re: Roland TS-400 - Help - drivers/software

Hi again Paolo, I ordered the z-axis sensor...under £4 on eBay for a basic version that's intended for Mach3 CNC users. It's 20mm thick and has an aluminium touch plate. OK, not as good as the brass one supplied by Roland, but £4.... I soldered the connecting lead to a mini jack plug (tip connector)...

Re: Hello from Cheshire, UK

Thanks for that Kai. It's unfortunate that EngraveStudio cannot be made to work on the TA-400. Regarding Vectric's VCarve Pro,at £540 I cannot possibly justify the purchase because I'm simply a hobbyist tinkerer, having retired from work back in 2009. I'd really like to use my TS-400 to produce 2.5D...

Re: Hello from Cheshire, UK

Hi Joe, and all, I've got the Roland TS-400 and I'm enjoying finding out its capabilities. I've just come across the Roland Engrave Studio software, which seems a useful application to me. The problem is that it only seems to recognise the Roland EGX-350 and Roland EGX-360 engraving machines. I'd re...

Re: Roland TS-400 - Help - drivers/software

Many thanks Paolo. As I’m sure you’re aware, I’ve been a bit anxious about trying this out. I’m a bit more confident now so I’ll go ahead and order the sensor and jack plug.
Thanks again.
Regards, Allan
