K40 + Visicut (Win/Mac/Linux) with Smoothie board replacement.
One big step forward for a usable solution !
Thank to @Thomas_Oster (Visicut developer)
Community call for help - Beta testers needed
Go there to find out about Visicut open source software -> https://hci.rwth-aachen.de/visicut
You will need a Smoothie board to upgrade your K40 -> http://smoothieware.org/getting-smoothieboard
Then please test all Thomas changes and report bugs and stuff in the pull-request https://github.com/t-oster/LibLaserCut/pull/23 from where you can already download the first build files.
Visicut for Win/Mac/Linux already existing, Visicut driver for Smoothie board (LibLaserCut) was the last missing link for a fully operational chain, hardware to software to mod our cheap K40 laser cutter at reasonable price. (Smoothie is cheaper than DSP board and benefit of Smoothie community support).
@Arthur_Wolf did told me sometime ago a K40 was modified with a Smoothie board. A hardware Mod tutorial would also be needed for our K40 community, any candidate ?
