Hi to all,
i’m just building a Mostly Printed CNC, i’ve already made the mechanical parts and i’m finishing to wire the motors.
Soon i’ll buy a drill and i want to connect it to the machine.
My question is: i buy the drill and after it how i will connect it ? Talking with a friend him has tell me that i have to cut a wire (near the plug that go in the wall) and i have to connect it with a relay that will be plugged on Ramps (for example, in the slot made for the bed heating in a 3d print).
So, when the signal for bed is actived, the relay close the circuit and the drill turn on. This is the right way ?
The second question is about the firmware/software.
I’ve see that the firmware used is Marlin and the software is Repetier Host.
I’m using Repetier Host for a 3d printer, where the layer “grow” from bottom to top, but if i have to use a Drill the sense is reversed, i start with a solid and the drill cut the surface going down. How this setup is made?
Thanks a lot to all!
