OpenMultibot Project Started
I officially announce that with the birth of my first grand kid today.
All components ordered, design work started and communication with Arduino via USB using python (thanks to Ultimaker Cura opensource code) is fun. If you cannot build for reasons we all had at some time you can bring huge value writing the conductor in Python for orchestrating the multipart GCode among bots with common Z. For that you need only Atmega running Marlin (for example) and USB hub. You do not have to have a printer to simulate to behavior: listen to the “ok” coming back from Marlin and program further :wink:

Hey, Hey, Looking good!

Did you look at Klipper? It seems to have a lot of what you are doing already?

Thanks :slight_smile: Yes I did. I choose another path tested in this post and this post, discussed here. I shall stream from a netbook with several USB ports. I do not want to invest on Raspi neither learning Octoprint. Others are welcome to do.
