Makelangelo software 7.8.0, Makelangelo firmware 7.0.0

Makelangelo software 7.8.0 brings friendlier CPU usage, new generators, DXF export for your CNC machine, and a host of bug fixes.  Did you know there are now over 2500 Makelangelo robots around the world? Awesome!

According to my records the 2500th Makelangelo is in Oman.  A super big thank you to everyone who donated (yay open source!) and to everyone in the forums who helped make this version better.

Special mentions for mbells and ShacharWeis for writing code to the project.  You rock!

We’ve been running classes and dealing with the back-to-school rush. So much education!  I’ve been making a big push to create more videos and 3D models of everything in the store.  Big thanks to Sarah and Mark of Robot Army for helping me learn non-linear editing.  Look below for the new unboxing & how-to videos.  Software video coming soon.

Enough talk, here’s the change list and the download links.
