    I want to make your life easier. Which of the following would help more?

    a) a full list of supported gcode, the syntax, and what it is for

    b) a tutorial about writing your own conversion style in java

    c) a tutorial about writing your own generator in java

    d) something else (please be specific)

    I would like to know how can i compile the project in IntelliJ IDEA?

    Thank you in advance,

    I really like the GCode list. Thank you.
    As a progression at school, the Cartesian grid is the place to start. Eventually (like in Middle School), I hope my students would understand GCode, much like html. Don’t know if there are any like-minded educators. For example, having students draw a picture from GCode on paper would be a good offline experience.

    Makelangelo software can load a gcode file, which will immediately be displayed in WYSIWYG preview.

    It may help to tick the box in preferences > graphics > show pen up moves

    So it would seem that with Scratch support now included, A-C are completed. Neato.

    New here too.

    Hope for a good start here.

    as a makelangelo fan:

    wireless connection
    tool/pen changer
    endstop usage / easier homing and easier machine size control
    easier usage without LCD ( skipping “click to continue” step ) maybe someone shares the gcode for skipping that step
    different approach to Z axis / being able to use brush and getting different linewidhts with servo angles

    would be perfect

    flying makelangelo
    wacom2makelangelo or wacom2gcode2makelangelo / realtime drawing
    DIY tutorial for dummies like me

    still. I love my makelangelo

    1. I’m looking at options for a wemos/esp* brain that would be wireless.
    2. what do you mean? automatic pen changing? foo… that’s a big ask for a polargraph.
    3. Possible on the M3 with a few changes.
    4. I could add a toggle in the software to not add the message, beep, and wait for click.
    5. not sure what you mean here.

    what kind of diy tutorial? Do any of these help? https://mcr.dozuki.com/c/User_Guides
