Question about Mini CNC Plotter Software Answered
Hi Smart People!
Sorry, but I need help! My head is absolutely spinning. And I suspect my question has a simple answer. I built a Mini Plotter using cd/dvd steppers and servo a couple of years ago. But I never quite finished for some reason. So I'm finally getting back to it now, but I have forgotten what software(s) to use. I'm using Inkscape ver. 48.5 w/ Unicorn to save as g-code. That much I've got. I understand that I need to send g-code to a grbl controller? But, I have downloaded so many programs over time, that I have no idea of the sequence anymore. Also, I do not remember gctrl.pde last time I was playing with this project. So my question is: Does anyone have a link for a tutorial for dummies that explains the software chain from Inkscape to finish? I have read so many, and watched so many videos that I have confused myself. Any guidance would be appreciated.
