Yes that software is on the site as well. It is written in the language called Processing so will run on any platform. It is all in the software bundle you can download.

I am looking it over now thank you.

Mike's page does say that he has software (written for Processing) that feeds the Arduino the Gcode.

For other Arduino firmware that reads Gcode take a look at: http://www.reprap.org/wiki/Firmware

For something comparable to Mike's Processing-based code try: http://replicat.org/



Thank you for the information I have been working with the reprap software i have got it all set up with the arduino and connected. The problem i seam to be having is that i cant find a good program that will produce gcode. I am using inkscape but every time I use that code there tends to be a coding error. Any thoughts on that?

What sort of errors?
I have used Inkscape with a Gcode plug in to convert text into Gcode for engraving. However it does produce some gcodes that are not implemented by a lot of rep rap controllers?
If you look at the Processing section of my site I have some Gcode generators and viewers for PCB engraving.

I think you are right.... I think ink scape just produces some code that is not processed by the reprap code
