I know a different XY Plotter that can be controlled through RoboPaint, which contains an API server that allows to write own software to control the plotter. It would be great if something could be done with EleksDraw which is not as expensive as other plotters. I am wondering if anyone had success to control the EleksDraw with Java or other language or where I can find more info on that.
Does the evilmadscientist robopaint work with grbl based systems?
Otherwise you need to buy the eibotboard, the control board for robopaint.
I didn't have a youtube account, but I made it for your assistance.
I uploaded a video file related to my EleksMaker Draw. It is able to draw some picture, but servo is not working.
I plan to use this device for making apparatus for quality evaluation.
I am looking forward to your answer. Thanks.
I think he means on the EleksDraw. The easiest way is to draw it as a continuous polyline. I was able to do it in Inkscape and save as DXF, load it in T2Laser and it worked like they showed. I have a Wacom tablet (pen) so it was simple, but with a touch screen and your finger may work or even using the mouse but I bet that's difficult.
@jeff I know for T2Laser when you select EleksDraw I change the max position to 45 (I could be slightly off on the exact number but it's between 30 and 50). If you try to travel more it will hit the stop and damage the servo.
If it's not working give the T2Laser trial a go, it also supports pen changes for different colors in the DXF and the optimizer and centerline tracing work great for this machine.
