DAGU CNC mill controller - first prototype

I've been developing a CNC controller for DAGU. The project originally started late 2012 but got shelved because of other projects. Now we've dusted it off and plan to finish it in the next 6 months. Unfortunately blog post don't support video so watch the video that explains the basics by clicking on the link.
