Roland MDX-15, 3D Mill

The MDX-15 from Roland allow ideas to take shape. Easy-to-use and compatible with many popular 2D/3D CAD software programs (autocad, solidworks, eagle). There are 3 ways to use this end mill:
 1) scanner object -> DXF file
 2) 3D object create STL (or DXF) -> object ( molds for lost wax, lost foam)
 3) 2D object create from any document though the print driver ( circuit boards ).
 
 Maximum operating area 6" x 4" x 2-3/8"
 Mechanical resolution 0.000984"
 Export/Import file formats DXF, VRML, STL, 3DMF, IGES, Grayscale,  Point Group and BMP
 Materials    wax, resins, chemical wood, acrylic and even light metals such as brass and aluminium

The Manuals only covers the start of using this resource. Training needs to be completed before access is granted.

the roland uses a USB to serial 9 Pin and this cable ( Belkin F2L044-06 ) for the roland MDX-xx series: 

 DB9 pin DB20 pin 9 25
 2 2 Rx Tx
 3 3 Tx Rx
 4 5 and 6 DTR DSR / CTS
 5 7 GND GND
 6 20 DSR DTR
 8 20 CTS DTR
 Shell Shell, 1  chassis

Since the RTS/CTS lines are used, when setting up a new serial port enable Hardware handshake for the port used.
