Re: GrblGru = Free 3D-Simulation for ShapeOko2

Release notes V3.42 A friend of mine gave me a tip some time ago to take a closer look at the Arduino Mega 2560. Now that I've gotten to work with this controller and especially with the Mega-5X software available on it, I'm very impressed. In combination with a RAMPS driver card developed for the 2...

Re: GrblGru = Free 3D-Simulation for ShapeOko2

Release notes V3.41 I have dealt once again with strategies for milling pockets and reworked the corresponding function in the new version V3.41. An overview of the currently available methods can be found in the short video. Have fun with GrblGru https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZPBROX6cqA&feature=...

Re: GrblGru = Free 3D-Simulation for ShapeOko2

Release notes V3.40 I have recently been repeatedly referred to the clamping board I used in the last video. That's why I decided to introduce my self-made clamping system and of course the small clamping device. For those who want to try it out in practice, I have also included a template in the pr...

Re: GrblGru = Free 3D-Simulation for ShapeOko2

Release notes V3.39 the topic of measuring and probing with the help of the G38.2 function hasn't quite let go of me yet. It's fascinating what you can do with a 10 Euro Arduino and the GRBL program. A friend of mine provided me with an old discarded probe, with which I could demonstrate the handlin...

Re: GrblGru = Free 3D-Simulation for ShapeOko2

AlexMoon, the GCode is calculated when you open or change a value in the measurement dialog. You can view the generated GCode in the editor. ( 4th toolbar button from the left ) To start the correct measurement on the machine, just press the green 'Start' button. Have a look at the video from 7:50. ...

Re: GrblGru = Free 3D-Simulation for ShapeOko2

Release notes V3.38 In my new program version V3.38 I once again worked with the function G38.2 for milling. This good and at the same time easy to use function makes it possible to scan uneven surfaces, e.g. to engrave them afterwards. The same applies to the production of PCBs, where any unevennes...

Re: GrblGru = Free 3D-Simulation for ShapeOko2

Release V3.37 Most of the changes in the new version concern the lathe mode again. Because Carbide inserts are used more and more often on hobby lathes, I have now added this type of tool to my program. In addition, I have revised the complete turning handling once again and I hope that the operatio...

Re: GrblGru = Free 3D-Simulation for ShapeOko2

Alexmoon,
your suggestion sounds very interesting. Most of the required functions are already included in the current GrblGru version.
But the projection of a GCode program on the height map I still have to create.
It would be helpful if you could provide me with a GCode example file.

Re: GrblGru = Free 3D-Simulation for ShapeOko2

@Alexmoon Thanks :) I've checked the problem now. So far I have only tried the probe in the ShapeOko2_Probe model. Your 3D model must have a probe (green probe), which you have to save under t++.stl. It is my mistake that the program crashes if no button is present. I'll fix that in the next version...
