    Has anyone use the Raspberry pi to use the Universal Gcode sender. I am thinking designing my gcode in the house using sketchucam and send it to the raspberry pi in the garage will be a easy and cleaner solution. My wood shop is far from dust free. I have about 5 or 7 raspberry in the house from dogfood feeders to move controllers. I have a nice 10 inches monitor with the pi attached to the back. It would be a easy solution of the universal Gcode sender worked will
    on the PI.

    Thanks.

    Hi
    According to this web site
    UGS
    it will run on the Raspberry
    you just need to make sure Java is installed and then unzip UGS where you want it.

    BCNC works great on the Pi
    it's what I run my machine with. I'm going to try it this weekend with the Pi 7" touchscreen
