tinyG Vectric Aspire Post Processor

Hello All,

I am thinking of making the move from GRBL to tinyG as my GRBL shield has been giving me issues. I wanted to see if anyone is using tinyG with tool paths generated from Vectric Aspire as this is the software I use for my workflow.

Thanks for any input...

Re: Mother's Day Sign

Edward you are right on, I did make a change to my Power Savings settings and just set 'Put the Computer to sleep' to Never while plugged in as I am always running while plugged in. I do allow the display to dim and slow to turn off after 10 minutes and have not seen any ill effects from this.
