I recently became a member of a local fablab,and I'm making so FreeCAD enrollment there
for the design topic and the 3D printing topics I'm quite skilled, so it's easy for me to proove the benefits of FreeCAD versus soft like tinkercad or SW cracked (as lots of people do use it cracked for hobby)
We recently add a Xcarve (from inventables) to the shop.
It sounds like the machine is drived by GRBL.
today we use Easel as this is the default software, but honestly I already see the limitation of this software for those who wants "accurate" stuff.
So now here comes my 2 questions :
First one, does somebody has already used freeCAD to generate gcode for a Xcarve? if yes, what feedback can you give?
Second question(s) is more linux / CNC / FreeCAD workflow related.
let's assume a design something in FreeCAD, and generate a gcode file.
using UGS (assuming it recognize the Xcarve) I can send it directly to the machine?
I assume there are some starting Gcode or End gcode to adjust as for a 3D printer? no?
I watch lot of sliptonic videos, but anyway I still have the felling to miss something in the workflow.
So any information welcome
