Connecting a controller to RAMBo 1.4


is there a way to connect a (for instance) Xbox controller to the RAMBo controlling the MPCNC for easy job preparation? If not - is there an alternative to the jog wheel on the control box?

Any suggestions welcome!

Cheers, BeeJay

There’s a few joystick adaptations if you look around in the forum. The easiest way (that I’ve figured out) is to set up a CNCjs server on an old laptop, and use the keyboard for jogging. Or even better, a small external keypad would be even easier! (if you don’t want to go tinkering all over the place :smiley: ) then you can create different macro-commands to accomodate for your needs: (zeroing, moving to work-position, homing, etc)
