Focus - PC Based CNC Control System

In April of this year we released GCode Sender 4-Axis, a software that will continue the course of our old GCode Sender. However, because our new software has started to acquire features that completely separate it from the classic GCode Sender, we decided to change its name. Our new PC based CNC control software from today goes by the name Focus, continues to be compatible with GRBL Firmware and has all the features that its previous version had.
