Re: Jedicut and Arduino over USB

The other cutter I was reading about that used Arduino turned out to be only using it for the timing signal and thermal control of the hot wire.
All the step/direction control was still done via the parallel port.

What I'm looking at now is loading reprap teacup firmware on my Arduino Mega

The Arduino would interpret g code on the board and run the steppers.. The g codefile is sent via serial connection to the Arduino.

Are there any plugins for Jedicut to export G code or do you think it's possible to port Jedicut jdc files to g code?

Is the cut path defined in the jdc file or is that only calculated when you start the cutting process?
If the path is defined in the jdc then it might be possible to re-write the teacup g code parser.
