Re: GrblGru = Free 3D-Simulation for ShapeOko2

GrblGru @Linux ? I have been asked many times if GrblGru is also available for Linux. Until now I always had to deny this. But now a clever user has found a way to run GrblGru on "Wine" under Linux. According to him it is still possible to improve the process. Since I have no experience with Linux, ...

Re: GrblGru = Free 3D-Simulation for ShapeOko2

Beta notes V3.49.9 On my website is a new beta version V3.49.9. It contains the first attempt to make measuring on the lathe available again. I have made a short video about it. It shows how to measure an STL object virtually. The calculated GCode can also be sent to the controller. Unfortunately my...

Re: GrblGru = Free 3D-Simulation for ShapeOko2

@dgamble1
Projection should now work in the new beta version V3.49.4.
But you have to load a suitable STL part before, so that the font or whatever can be projected on it. It should also work on turned parts that are not cylindrical.

Re: GrblGru = Free 3D-Simulation for ShapeOko2

Release notes V3.49 once again I would like to announce a new version of my program GrblGru. The attached video "From Carving to Inlay (part 2)" this time concerns the creation of raised text. The reworked function "Pocket Contour parallel" for machining pockets with islands thus provides the basis ...

Re: GrblGru = Free 3D-Simulation for ShapeOko2

The 1st digit of the version number is the main version. It is only changed if something very important has changed. The 2nd digit is the current released version. The 3rd digit is only available for beta versions (not yet released trial versions) V3.48 is larger (i.e. newer) than V3.45.(13). This m...

Re: GrblGru = Free 3D-Simulation for ShapeOko2

Release notes V3.48 after my last trips to the multi-axis robots, I would like to concentrate on the 3-axis milling machines again. For a long time now, the wish to be able to engrave has been on my list. Especially the production of inlays is a very attractive task for a CNC machine. Now that the f...

Re: GrblGru = Free 3D-Simulation for ShapeOko2

Release notes V3.47.0 in my last video I introduced how to bring robot arms to life with the help of macros. As a small addition I would like to show that some of the GrblGru CAM functions can also be used. For example, it is possible to have a DXF or SVG drawing drawn by a robot arm. And this not o...

Re: GrblGru = Free 3D-Simulation for ShapeOko2

Release notes V3.46.0 In the new version V3.46.0 a new 3D model of a 6-axis robot arm has been added. It is the WE-R2.4, which was designed by Jeff Kerr at Thingiverse. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3327968 For those who are interested in details about the WE-R2.4, I recommend the very good 3-pa...
