DevCnc Foam by the devCad Team


DevCnc Foam, Theremino controller

You can read more about the Theremino project here, it's a really interesting and innovative italian open source project.
The actual version of devCnc Foam supports both Theremino Master Usb V3 (10 pins) and V4 (12 pins)

The Theremino Master Usb module V3 (10 pins) and V4 (12 pins) (courtesy Theremino ):

The good piece of news is that Theremino Master Usb is not just a simple USB controller, and you can have different ways to use it:

Theremino as the main board of the controller

If you like to assemble your own controller, you can just purchase a Theremino Master Usb module, and connect the stepper driver you prefer.
You can see here more detals about the way Theremino Master works, and how you can connect your preferred stepper drives. If you need more info you can also contact the Theremino team, they will be appy to help you.
To purchase your Theremino Master Usb module I suggest you to see the list of the certified Theremino module reseller, you can find it here. Also Theremino Store is now selling a Theremino Usb certified controller.


Theremino as an Usb interface to your parallel port controller  

If you already own a parallel port controller, and you want to migrate to a more efficient and easy to use Usb port (the parallel port is no more included in modern computers), you can build your own Usb to Parallel port interface using a Theremino Master Usb module.
You  can find here more details about how you can build it (just a matter of soldering some wires...).
Using this Usb interface your Cnc will work smoother, as now the timing part (the most critical part of a controller based on a parallel port) is no more performed by the computer, but by the internal quarzed clock of the Theremino Master Usb module.
