Shapeoko-2 Communications Control

Postby medevac121 » Sun Feb 10, 2019 5:09 pm

I have a Shapeoko 2 that I haven't used in quite a while and I was wondering if "Carbide Create" would work as my CAD/CAM software? If not what would you recommend?

Carbide Create will work with pretty much anything which will support G-Code.

You'll need to use a 3rd party communication / control program though, Carbide Motion is specific to Carbide 3D machines. https://wiki.shapeoko.com/index.php/Com ... _/_Control or https://wiki.shapeoko.com/index.php/Com ... nterpreter --- or see: http://shapeoko.github.io/Docs/software.html
