I thought I’d share my new discovery that I’m having a bit of fun with. I’m sure this is not new news but it might help others that are looking for an alternative gcode sender that works well with smoothie.
I have good luck using it. I like the easy setup of macro buttons, and the ui is more customizable and intuitive than others I have used. Only thing missing is a built in probing and autolevel Routine/UI like chilipeppr or bcnc.
I honestly don’t have an opinion yet. It looks promising. I had a job to run so I resorted to bcnc because I know it a bit better. Bcnc will stop when you tell it to. Cncjs sort of lingers for a bit before it stops. I think it’s got to empty it’s queue and I don’t have an estop connected yet.
@SirGeekALot but the cncjs probe cannot yet do mesh level. For cutting large sheet aluminum this is important or you can have too deep of a DOC, leading to chatter. For me mesh level is the only missing piece for cncjs.
@Eclsnowman Thanks for sharing your opinion. I just took a quick look at the github home page wiki and realized it is also a CAM tool! Have you used its CAM functionality, or do you only use it as a gcode sender?
