I set out to build a 3 axis CNC module for the Open Source Flexible Manufacturing System I have designed.
Originally, it was going to run on an Arduino, with a g-code interpreter etc. but what I ran into was getting the Ethernet shield functioning so the cube could accept commands over an Ethernet segment is apparently slightly beyond my current talents.
I will still getting working (perhaps with hired assistance) but the for now I am focusing on getting an EMC implementation to work - any guidance to working Ethernet commanded Arduino controlled CNC’s would be helpful.
