Topic: 2-axis C.N.C. pancake maker (Read 803 times) previous topic - next topic


I am making a 2-axis pancake maker. I am trying to figure out how to make the Arduino call to and read a G-code document to control 2 stepper motors. I have tried to find something online but have found nothing of use. If someone can point me to a solution I would be very thankful.


Install a firmware like Grbl on your Arduino and use a GCODE sender program on the computer.

Ideally you'd get a Mega and RAMPS combination (~$40 from eBay/Amazon/etc.) and use a firmware with a bit more power (Marlin, Sprinter, etc.).


You really should incorporate at least one pancake motor, I think ... :-)
The internet is a great thing. Use it.
Real Programmers use ++C
