Roland / Techsoft TS-400 CNC Engraver - help!

Post by Bloodtype » Tue Nov 07, 2017 6:08 pm

Newbie alert!

I'm hoping to get some help with my TS-400. I was given it for free and it all looks in good nick, turns on and is recognised by the computer. It is lacking a software disk which I'm waiting to arrive from Techsoft which I'm hoping will help in my endeavours. In the meantime, is there a way of me knowing whether the thing runs? ie a way to move the spindle along the different axis, get it spinning etc without that software?
The external controller doesn't seem to do anything but I am lead to believe it won't until I have the software installed.
Any ideas gratefully received!

Sorry for beginner questions!

If you have the Windows driver installed you could output using the Roland software like Dr. Engrave to determine if the machine is running correctly.
