Chilipeppr is full featured, web based, GCode sender. GCode senders basically send your CNC toolpath files to the micro controller running your CNC machine.
Chilipeppr takes that concept to the max. It more like a full featured front end to your CNC machine. It visualizes the GCode, shows the status of your machine, helps with work offsets and jogging. It also has some cool tricks it can do to deal leveling and Z probing. It is currently compatible with machines running Grbl and TinyG.
John Lauer, the creator will be conducting the presentation via Google Hangout. We hope to expand the presentation. I'll tweet out a link on @buildlog and post it here when we work that out.
We will have a machine or two for a physical demo.
Here is a link to the hangout. (https://plus.google.com/events/con9ti5jg9c69efr8canh0c4lfc)
The CNC Club is a monthly meeting of Chicago area people passionate about learning, building and using digital fabrication equipment. It is held at the Pumping Station One (http://www.pumpingstationone.org/) Hackerspace. It is open to non members. We also have a Google Group called CNC Build Club. (https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/cnc-build-club)
Each meeting we talk about, build, train on and use CNC machines. We have 3D printers, laser cutters, CNC routers and vinyl cutters. Come out and join the fun.
Please RSVP, but don't be concerned about the low RSVP count. Unfortunately most people don't respond, but we usually get between 10 and 30 people per week.
