Hacking Your CNC Toolchain

Postby bdring » Fri Aug 10, 2012 11:04 pm

Some people were wondering how to hack their CNC tool chains at PS:One CNC night. I made this blog post to show the process I usually follow.

I used my Quantum ORD Bot as a stand in for a small CNC router like the ShapeOko. I got it to run this toolchain.

Vectric Aspire
PrintRun
Marlin

I had Marlin use a fan control for the spindle and wrote a custom post processor. Most people are using GRBL, but Marlin seems for be on the development fast track these days.
