Shopbot compatability and Shape Sequencing

Hey guys, I’m considering using Easel to run my old Shopbot PRT and I’m wondering if anyone has had success doing this. I also don’t see any control over the cutting sequence of the shapes. With some projects I really need control over that so I hope it an available option.

Easel is designed to communicate with GRBL firmware. You would need to replace the controller on the Shopbot with a controller running GRBL in order to use Easel. In my opinion You would be better off modifying it to run Mach3 and buying (or using free) CAD/CAM software with a Mach3 post processor

Thanks for the advice

You can use Easel to design something and export the gcode to use on your favorite sender program.
