To cut at the right length my vslot profiles , i just made an automated stop.
It is controlled by a software made by myself ( yes i'm pretty proud of myself LOL )
With this software you can do a " ZERO machine" , input the needed length cut , come back to zero , use an offset ... go back and forward step by step ( sorry for my very poor english ... )
And last but not least, this software will be gratis when i will have truly tested it in all conditions.
I hope you will enjoy it ...
and now ... a little video ( Special thanks to Shakira who sang for me in this video .. )
If you need any additional functions to the software , just ask and i will try ...
Electronic to use : Any GRBL compatible controller card ( i try with Arduino UNO + Gshield V5 and CNC X Pro)
I know , i took too much time to release this software .. all my apologies ;-)
The V2 version of Cut to length software is finally here . Maybe .. surely .. there are some bugs in it .Just write a message on the forum and i will try to fix them . If you want some improvements , just ask me and i will try to do them.
You can find the software in the file section of this post
Some informations :

You need to unlock everytime you make a Homing
Port com must be set if you want to connect to your GRBL controler
hard limits must be disable ( $21=0)
Homing cycle must be enable ( $22 = 1)
GRBL setting must be made according to your machine ( step/mm , speed , acceleration ..)
Homing pull off must be set to 0 ( $27=0)
X- axis limit switch must be NO ( normaly open ) , no other limit switch must be connected .
This program is for testing only, use it at your own risk.
