CronosMaker controller with T2 software - does anyone use it?
« on: February 01, 2019, 08:53:22 PM »
Close to completion to build my own engraver. The last thing the CronosMaker controller comes in a few days. I chose it because it can work offline and have limit-switch connectors. But this is only GRBL version 0.9J. Now I am looking for a good software for my engraver. So the question is:
Does anyone use T2Laser software with a CronosMaker controller? Any recommendations / first steps?

I have that exact board with the remote controller (larger LCD version). I use it on my CNC machine and have plans to hack the controller and add features, like homing and Z-probe but to answer your questions, yes it works great with T2Laser.

I save the G-code to the SD card and run it remotely or you can use it direct like any other board.
