I am a new member here and am posting on my mobile phone, so I may not be doing this correctly my options seem limited. I own a few K-40 machines and one them just started misbehaving, so I think it is a perfect time to explore my options in upgrading. I have been very curious to try LaserWeb for some time but don’t know where to begin.
I have a dozen Raspberry Pi 2/3’s that I could use so I considered the Pi CNC hat, then thought that due to the long shipping delays (and currently having a production laser down and out of commission) that I can’t delay this upgrade - so I am considering the Arduino powered GRBL sets on eBay. I think since I have the Pi’s already sitting on my shelf that it would be silly to pay the CPU cost of the Smoothieboard, but honestly I am worried because I don’t yet know what is or is not compatible with LaserWeb.
I will begin reading through this group archives and try to learn as much as can before placing my orders today, but if anyone could offer any guidance or suggestions I would appreciate it.
