Our machine contains an Arduino running GRBL firmware, and requires a connection to a computer to receive commands that operate the Sienci Mill One.
Universal G-Code Sender is a simple G-code sender that uses Java, which means you can run it on Windows, Mac, Linux, and other operating systems as long as you have the latest Java version installed. GRBL 1.1 works best with the latest nightly build of UGS.
Fusion 360 is another great software that you can use to both make your 3D models and generate CAM paths for them afterward. What’s even cooler is that an open-source plugin has been in under development for a while so that now you can integrate Universal G-code Sender straight into Fusion 360! Check out the github and a great instructional video for how to download and integrate the plugin and let us know what you think.
Kiri:Moto’s built in G-code sender:
Kiri:Moto allows you to operate your CNC machine inside the browser using a serial post JSON server and requires some setup to allow your web browser to send G-code to your Sienci Mill One. You can also set up the JSON server for ChilliPeppr, another browser based G-code sender with some additional features. Instructions on setting up Kiri:Moto for sending G-code on Github.
