    Hi Pendragon

    Looks like we are using the same electronics. I'm also hoping to get away with open source software too.

    I have many competing priorities at the moment so while I think I have all the parts I need (except a bench), I haven't made a whole lot of progress.

    Good luck with your build.

    Thank a lot for the encouragements. Electronic is working pretty well for the moment. But it doesn't move any router for the moment. I just received most of the hardware, including the KRESS router 1050 FM 1. My rails also arrived. Tomorrow I will cut them to the right size.

    The big part is he plate cut of. I found a fablab in the area, will take contact with them, they have a CNC...

    The deltabot group (https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/deltabot) started a very nice initiative. Members can receive the printed parts to build a Kossel Mini if they pledge to print and send those for free to other members.
    My OX is basically complete but I've not tried yet to mill aluminum.

    The concept is fantastic and the UI very very good. I experience a few rough edges but I am sure they will be addressed. Totally recommended.

    As said nothing major but here are a few things I found out:
    • Can't find an easy way to regulate the feedrate in joggle mode (I suspect it is hardcoded to F200 ?).
    • Sometimes when I load a design it doesn't load it in the preview ... not sure exactly when that happens so I will search for a reproducible pattern.
    • When resetting the tinyg the connection is obviously lost but then it is not restored and I have to refresh the page to make it work.
    Keep up the amazing work!

    • Jogging is now G0 commands, so feedrate is the max you have your machine set to.
    • Your design likely had spaces after XYZ coords. That's fixed now.
    • TinyG reconnect should be good in Serial Port JSON Server 1.6 published yesterday.
