Hi, is possible connect 2 kflop for 16 Axis interpolate?
Thanks!

Hi,

Do you need all 16 coordinated together? For what purpose?

You can do 8 axes in each board simultaneously, but they won't be necessarily in sync, unless some form of synchronization is added.

Hi, I am designing a very specialized machine for wood, similar to this one, to reduce production times.

That's doesn't look to require more than 5 axes of coordinated motion per head.

But my question is about connect 2 cards simultaneously, if I need 9 or more Axis working together. Or 2 cards don't connect to the same pc, with one instance kmotion

It is possible to connect multiple KFLOPs to a single PC and have them operate simultaneously. However there is a limitation of KMotionCNC to only operate one GCode Program and one KFLOP at a time. You could run two instances of KMotionCNC with different configurations controlling different KFLOPs running different GCode but trigger to begin execution at the same time. See using multiple configurations and using multiple boards.

Otherwise you would need to write a custom PC Application capable of operating multiple boards.
