ChiliPeppr online Grbl software
« on: May 19, 2016, 12:12:39 PM »
Hello Everyone,
I am a newbie with a mac. 
I have just bought a 5500mw A3 laser and I am not familiar with windows.

I find out this amazinig online Grbl software
I installed the serial-port-json-server on github
and after a little fidling the thing stated moving... wow.


I was wondering which G-code commands you need to turn on and turn off the laser?

It depends on how that Grbl was implemented for that feature. There must be some docs available for that Grbl version?

I just had a play with ChiliPeppr for trying milling and am quite impressed.
You need the gcode already, it does no pre processing but us customisable for various grbl versions and can run in a raspberry pi and give you control over the additional unused gpio ports as well.
Quite fast, I was getting 30-60 fps for the 3D visualisation window, has a simulator as well.
Drag and drop the gcode in and hit play.

For windows 7 I needed to load the json bridge which it has internal links for, run that and leave it running, then refresh the page and the com ports will then show up for connection.
