The latest release of G-Wizard Editor (install page) now includes a post for the Roland series of benchtop CNC mills.  I hear from a lot of folks who have these little mills and use them for desktop prototyping or jewelry making.

The Roland MDX-40A and MDX-540 are typical examples:

Roland mdx40 Roland mdx540

These little machines use a g-code dialect that’s pretty close to ISO, with a few minor differences.  To access the new post, be sure you’ve downloaded the latest posts.  There’s a button on the Setup Machine Profile to do that:

RolandPostOnce you’ve downloaded the latest posts, use the Browser button and select the “RolandMill” post.

You’ll want to make sure you have GWE v1.047 or better.  If you haven’t tried GW Editor yet, check it out.  There’s a free 30-day trial.
