In this study, a three-axes PC numerical control system for industrial applications has been developed. With this system, fast and cheap prototyping of designed objects can be realized. The system consists of software and a hardware which includes an XYZ positioning table and three step motors controlling this table. A proper drive circuit for the stepper motors is utilized. The software digitizes two dimensional drawings of three dimensional objects and generates the control signals for the XYZ positioning table. The software is developed under Microsoft Studio Visual Basic 6.0 environment regardless of the OS of the PC. The parallel port of the PC has been utilized for generating the necessary control signals for the stepper motors.
