    To build a USB to para-port dongle for Jedicut you could buy para-port field termination connector from

    http://www.l-com.com/d-sub-db25-female-connector-for-field-termination
    then also buy a Arduino teensy 2.0++ sold at Micro Center

    http://www.microcenter.com/product/434103/Teensy_USB_Board_Version_20

    terminal blocks for teensy from

    http://www.adafruit.com/products/2138

    Arduino code to load on teensy from

    https://github.com/jerome-aeropassi...ions/tree/master/USBSerial/Arduino/fcifmdlcnc

    The below link is for Jedicut English forum you can read about how to do this
    they used a UNO board but a teensy2.0++ is a much smaller form factor and the same as a UNO

    Solder terminal connectors on teensy, load software using teensyduino a add on for Arduino IDE get from

    https://www.pjrc.com/teensy/teensyduino.html

    Make wire connections from teensy to field termination connector to match your control board,
    Note do not change pin assignments in Arduino sketch, make your connections as the way your para-port pin are set up for your machine.
    This gives the flexibility to connect almost all para-port breakout boards. I would put a piece of card stock on the bottom of field termination connector with a dab of hot glue, then a dab of hot glue on teensy to card stock. Have the para-port connector on one end and the USB connection on the other end. Then use some battery pack shrink wrap to encapsulate your creation.

    Now cut some foam
    Enjoy

    Hello !

    Thanks to my favorite search engine, I discover this awesome site ;)

    My name is Jerome, and I'm the author of Jedicut, a free CNC software for foam cutting (with wire heating).

    I didn't work on Jedicut from many months because I wanted to discover and learn someting new : I recently published my first Android app : Times and events - Android Apps on Google Play

    But here, the main purpose is CNC project and after this Android experience, I'm back on Jedicut. I'm working on a new release with bug corrections and new features.

    Thank you Timothy for your message. It's a good summary to use Arduino as a USB controller with Jedicut. :thumbsup:

    Follow Jedicut on facebook and twitter to discover the work in progress and new ideas. When you follow me, you also help me :)
