X-Carve Wireless Pendant

Just found this thread and loving what you have done thus far!
-I really thing the rotary encoderso for moving the axises would be even better. Only 3 knows instead of 13ish buttons!
-Maybe instead of having it say laser on/off just have it say AUX on/off?!
-Lastly, I don’t really see the need for the mm/inch button if you already are going to have one for changing between micro/macro.
I’ll definitely be interested in h9w it turns out!
Keep up the great work!

Good work!
Hit me up for your second iteration release and maybe you can shove https://cdn-shop.adafruit.com/product-files/3269/pinout_wroom_pinout.png into it and websocket directly to the EaselLocal driver.


Been a while since I’ve made much progress on this with so many other projects but I finally finished the final design (for now at least). I ended up making it much smaller than the previous photos I shared. I found some improved methods with the code to cut down on the number of buttons. Unfortunately one of the chips I currently use has been out of stock for almost 4 months so I can’t make any to sell at the moment but for anyone still interested I will keep this post updated when they become available.

I used it today for the first time in its complete capacity and worked quite well. I was able to completely set up several cuts without ever touching the computer. The label layer needs a little adjustment but other than that I’m pretty happy with it.

New overall size = 6" x 4" x 1-1/8"
All the buttons on the RH side are programmable to any g-code with the exception of the POWER button. I will adjust these as I go based on what I find most useful.
Rather than “macro” vs “micro” as I did previously, the STEP button changes the step size according to the top 4 LEDs. This mimics the Easel interface.


Please contact me when you have these for purchase!!! My email is donspells@comcast.net.

Yeah, I started writing a Windows phone app to use Bluetooth to communicate with an arduino that I would then use as a keyboard wedge, but my schedule changed and I haven’t gotten back to it. When I start up again I’m thinking I may switch to an android phone app, since so few people have Windows phones…

Wouldn’t mind the Windows Phone App and neither would my HP Elite X3 =)

But would this also somehow work with the X-Controller? I assume not, eh?

Would there not be too much lag if you used a smartphone app to send inputs?

@BobJewell My current price is targeted at $165. Since one of the chips is hard to come by I’m investigating an alternative as I know a few people were interested in getting one.

One of the issues I was still facing was that the console is buried under a few layers of menus so after a job or at any point I wanted to start using it, I would still have to go back to the computer. Fortunately, with the Ctrl+Shift+D shortcut to open the console I learned about recently, I can now open and close the console from the pendant making it a little more “wireless”.

Are you setting up a waiting list for these Beauties???
I’d love to get on a list to be the next one to get the latest model…

I would be interested in one as well.

Please add me to the list.

I’ve added a few to the inventory. I will have some more soon as I’m waiting for parts.
