I am intrigued by the idea of carving some textures. I Messaged Jeff about the idea of using his sandify program to generate STL files that would be a texture. He responded
“ You could easily add some starting and endging gcode to set the speed, and dive to a few mm in Z. Then the pattern could be cut with a v bit.“.
I may have to try this. I could see this making interesting pen blanks and knife handles if I resin cast the carved surface.
Does it seem reasonable?
The zenXY is a core XY system where as the mpcnc is a Cartesian system. Is that difference handled in the firmware or g code?
