    Hi all

    after some advice as i've blown another laptop in the shop so Im going to start using a pi instead of a laptop for sending the g-codes to my workbee.

    I've tried openbuilds control (not sure if it will work on RPI) but with some of my cuts on the laptop it used to slow down to a minute crawl,

    UGS? not my favorite control sender but good for XYZ Probe

    bCNC, not a big fan as i like things nice and simple and the rpi version is local info only, and all my designs are stored on the office PC

    so id like to give CNCjs a try. I've been battling through installation guides all weekend and after 3 days I still cant get it running.

    Does anyone have a walk through or a good video source on how to set it up?

    Thanks in advance

    My opinion: Pi is too slow, SD cards corrupt if you look at the Pi funny, and yeah who wants to spend days installing dependencies. But i run a couple Pipo X9/X10s around my shop. They stand up really well to the dust. Built in touchscreen is awesome.
    Runs windows 10 so works with all the above. [US$219.99] Original Box PIPO X10 Pro 64GB Intel Z8350 Quad Core 10.8 Inch Dual OS TV Box Tablet Tablet PC from Computer & Networking on banggood.com
    Of course 'cheap or free PCs on Craigslist' is not a thing where i am (;

    Oh and yes it can OpenBuilds/OpenBuilds-CONTROL but I don't recommend it - Pi is just too slow, not enough RAM)
