Re: LEDs under the X-axis

That looks really good! Suppose you used the self adhesive tape added to the strip for installation so its pretty straight forward. Great idea and definitely will do.
Thanks for sharing!

Re: Shapeoko 3 Probe & Limit Switch Kit

Do you know what would be the cost for the kit shipping to Mexico City? The country is not listed on the checkout page.
Thanks!

Re: Running universal gcodesender on a Raspberry Pi

The feature that i really liked from chilipeppr is that gives you the opportunity to do semi automatic tool changes. When the gcode widget detects an M6 command, pauses the streaming and let you move the machine to a certain position, do a tool offset and resume. I plan on doing aluminum machining w...

Re: Raspberry Pi g-code senders for Grbl

- UGS should work at this point by double-clicking on the start.sh icon or executing it from terminal. If UGS gets slow or non-resposive during a job, uncheck the auto-scrolling feature. You could make a desktop icon by creating a blank text file on the desktop and copying the code below Just make ...

Or do I have to stick to running UGS in the Pi and Remote Desktop I really like UGS, so simple and straight forward. Thanks to all of you guys for your hard work developing this. So aweso...

Re: GRBL with rotary axis

Have you tried talking to chamnit? Maybe drop him an email or something? He is the current developer/maintainer of GRBL so I guess he could point you in the right direction as where to do the modifications.
