I use the Universal GCode Sender. It was the one on the instructions when I built the S2.

I thought that was what this was all about. :D

Okay, I don't see why it makes a difference to the intent of the poll -- you count ChiliPeppr and Easel as a vote for "internet required", and everything else as a vote for "no internet required", and spelling it out should not make a difference -- but I put it back, because it was not polite of me to barge in and edit Will's poll.

@cvoinescu : Will solved this issue by starting a new poll based on this question. I don't think matters what this poll says at this point. Thanks though.

Two new programs to try:

- https://github.com/cody82/grblgui
- https://github.com/Denvi/grblControl

Anything else we need to find?

Thanks Will, GRBLcontrol looks neat!

I just tried to use it but it looks like Grbl doesn't finish booting, because when I try to jog, nothing happens. If i close it and open Universal G-code Sender, the CNC moves fine.

Any suggestion? :|

The wrong baud rate setting can cause that. The correct setting for GRBL 0.9x with the default configuration is 115,200.

Thanks, but it´s set up at 115200. (It´s the same in UGS afaik). Is anyone getting it to work? I'm on Linux Mint Rafaela. I'm in the dialout group already (same for UGS also). I don't have to compile anything right, just download the tar.gz, extract and double click on grblctrl? Is it possible i have some dependencies/librairies missing? Thanks.

Hi Will,

can you add Estlcam to the poll?



Compared to GRBL it has some additional features like Xbox360 gamepad support and feed override.
