Excuse me for my bad English. I speak Spanish.
Mi name is Carlos Álvarez, I From Itagüí Colombia, i'm 40 years old.
I want to do is use the cubieboard as a computing unit cnc router.

I want to do is use the cubieboard as a computing unit cnc router.
I am new to Linux, Ubuntu, Raspian, etc. software. This is the first cubieboard I buy, I wonder if the software supports Mach3Mill the cubieboard2. or what would be the software that could be used for this purpose.
Thanks for the suggestions and help.

Bienvenido!  :D
Perhaps it could work if you find a version capable to run on Arm platform.

Hi actkk2000.

I do not understand what you say about me arm, my project has to do with a cnc router machine. Forgive my ignorance.
Then I'll be posting the items I want to use (hardware and software) to make this project.

Ofall forms thanks for your cooperation and suggestions.

ARM is a processor arquitecture, wich is different from Intel or Macintosh, meaning you need to find out if the software you need is ready to run on ARM processors, not all Linux software are...

Here documentation on Cubie products: http://docs.cubieboard.org/products/start#a20-cubieboard
Here information on ARM arquitecture: http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arquitectura_ARM

Hello Rockaliche
The cubieboard is based on an ARM architecture. That's why actkk2000 was speaking about it.
But Forgive my ignorance, what is a CNC router ? That's a computer controlled cutting machine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CNC_router) ?

Are you planning to feed with the table?You said that youve seen CNC made this way.
 Why not move the router head?

You can only run Mach3 on Windows based computers. On a Raspberry Pi, Cubieboard, or other ARM based boards you can run Linux CNC, Machine Kit, or bCNC.

I have run bCNC on a RPi connected over USB to a Smoothieboard,http://smoothieware.org/smoothieboard
