When my second CNC milling machine arrives (YOOCNC3020 in addition to my 6040),
I’m planning to scrap my Thing-O-Matic and make the CNC mill and 3D print.
Use the existing main board, extruder control board, power supply, extruderstepper driver board and send STEP+DIR to X,Y,Z stepper drivers of the CNC.
Need to switch between step+dir from Makerbot-board and CNC board.
Modify the firmware of the extruder control board to receive temperature via serial port and have MACH3 control X,Y,Z,A(extruder) and temperature.
Need to switch A-Axis cable and do some post-processing of the G-Code.
Firmware-Modification and G-Code postprocessing seems to already exist but for a very old version 2.2 as opposed to 3.5 of the board.
Did anyone here do something similar already?
