I have a really simple program I’m running repetitively that sends the same 25 lines of gcode and then two that vary with each invocation. I’m using universal gcode sender on a raspberry pi. that is like two orders of magnitude more computing power than the application needs.
I wrote a python gcode sender that parses a file and with each line, sends it and waits for an ‘ok’ return.
But I’d rather just write it in C and run it on an arduino micro that takes like 1/20th the space, power, and cost of the raspi.
Has anyone else already done this?
