Does anyone know if you can use easel on non inventables machines?

Just wanted to know if anyone has tried easel on other machines. I have a bobs cnc machine and it uses grbl.

Will do thanks

Yes you can but you have to flash Xcarve firmware in it.And for that you have to have ICSP programer and original xcarve arduino. Its not worth the afford.Just export g-code and use it like that :D.

Did you ever get it to work? I exported the gcode but the x and y were reversed. I tried tweaking some of the settings on easel but ended up having to reflash my Arduino with the original Bob file.

Just from a brief look at the BobsCNC website, you should be able to make that machine look like an X-carve.

It would depend on your electronics knowledge and a bit of re-wiring the stepper motor wires.

I tried it today and got it to work. I’m used to thinking that x should be at the bottom of the board if you are facing it, but it is set up so that x is on the left side. Just have to rethink how I’m looking at the machine.
