I’ve tried the import gcode feature in Easel, and it’s a bit odd to deal with. You have to create a new project, then import your gcode and set the material and bit size. At the end of this process you’re left with a new project on your list, but that project doesn’t actually contain the gcode so it’s effectively useless.
I think that this should go one of two ways:
- It’s possible to import and carve gcode without actually creating a project
- The gcode should be uploaded into the project so at least you’ve got the whole package.
I’m sure there’s plenty of room for debate as to whether the gcode should be uploaded into the Easel servers or not. In my particular case it would have been nice if the gcode were uploaded as I generated the gcode on one machine and previewed it in Easel to set it up, then I went where the X-Carve was and thought I could pull up the project on another machine and carve it, but found the gcode wasn’t there - I had a blank workpiece. But maybe people have privacy/confidentiality concerns and wouldn’t want the gcode uploaded to the cloud, or the file would be big enough that this would take too long.
