That is so cool!

I wish we could have similar success getting new translations of the Glossary --- thus far we only have French.

Release notes V3.19

again I can proudly report a GrblGru version with another language.
From today I can also provide the Hungarian language. Many thanks to my friend Jozef for his great work.

Release notes V3.20

the new GrbLGru version is ready for downloading.
Until now I've never concerned with drag knives. So I was very impressed to see what's possible with this kind of tool.
The great idea to provide a 'drag knife function' in GG comes from 'Tennessee Pilot', who has shared again his knowledge with us.

Hello WillAdams,

I came across your post by chance, as (unfortunately) I do not own a shapeOko.
Hope the attached translation of the Glossary to Italian is welcomed.

Best Regards,
Cesare

Release notes V3.21

On my dropbox is the new GrblGru version V3.21 ready for downloading. https://goo.gl/quFpdZ

I'm very happy to present again another machine. It's a machine with only 2 rotation axes.
The well-known and famous 'EggBot'. The little machine to draw on spherical or egg-shaped objects.
Thanks to my friend from Switzerland, who had the great idea for the EggBot simulation in GrblGru. :)

I've also changed the format of the machine- and settings data. Unfortunately this makes it necessary to make a new full installation.
So, please answer the question in the setup dialog 'Delete old version' with YES.
If you have made your own textfiles, macros or machine models, please make a copy before.

See in the attached video, how you can use this new 3D model to simulate the drawing process of your EggBot.

Thanks for giving GG a try. :)
There is a little video about using the lathe on my dropbox.
See https://www.dropbox.com/s/md5wa220e3q4s ... g.mp4?dl=0
Hope this helps a bit. Please contact me, if something is not clear.

Thanks. I have been successful using the provided examples, but my problem is when I draw my own shape is dxf formate and import it to the program , it show the shape but it won't trace it and make a path. Can you tell what program you made the example dxf files in?
