Hi, I’m trying to upgrade my K40 to work from a standalone computer instead of using a laptop.
My plan is to use a raspberry Pi (3B in this case) attached to the case with a touch screen. Files will be passed by USB. The shed is outside of wifi range!
My template is this tutorial: https://www.novaspirit.com/2018/06/14/raspberry-pi-controlled-k40-laser-cutter/
Which uses version 0.19.
I’m trying to install v0.54 of K40 Whisperer, but have come across a couple of issues. The first being an error message “Unable to load Pyclipper library (Offset trace outline will not work without it”.
I’m no python expert, but I think it is installed… so don’t know why it is not ‘seeing it’?
The second issue is there are no jog/move controls? Is this normal?
Any suggestions much appreciated.
