what are some alternatives to UGS
Chili pepper the web based gcode sender
easel about as simple as it gets
bCNC, There is also a platform version of UGS that I like much better than UGS. There is a new on about to come out that has some wonderful features that I really like. More to come on that.
I use bCNC to on my Raspberry Pi
I use PicSender. It will handle massive files that will lock up when using UGS. It isn’t free but for less than $20 you can’t go wrong. (No I don’t have a financial interest it it). Before you buy it you should download the free test version to see if you like it. Then upgrade to the paid version. The trial version will only carve 1/2 of your g-code so it is useless except for testing it out to see if you like it. Not a bad idea for them to do it that way though.
Is bCNC compatible with the stock X-Carve?
It works with standard GRBL so as long as you use a post processor compatible with it you shouldn’t have any problems
Cool, do you have a link for it?

GRBL CNC command sender, autoleveler, g-code editor, digitizer, CAM
and swiss army knife for all your CNC needs.
An advanced fully featured g-code sender for GRBL. bCNC is a cross platform program (Windows, Linux, Mac) written in python. The sender is robust and fast able to work nicely with old or slow hardware like [Raspberry Pi](http://www.openbuilds.com/threads/bcnc-and-the-raspberry-pi.3038/) (As it was validated by the GRBL maintainer on heavy testing).
