Please copy the files located in the folder called plugin in the zip file to the following location of Inkscape\share\extensions\ folder. Maker sure you are not running Inkscape or you will not see it in the extension menu. Also note that certain files will be replaced in inkscape. So make backup copy of files that you do not want replaced. I hope this helps.
@DWiskow - I just downloaded and installed the SourceRabbit GCode sender, at it looked like it was going to work great, but the "Connect your CNC" Port: selector doesn't show my Eleksdraw's /dev/tty.wchusbserial1420 serial port, so I couldn't use it. I tried a number of times, but it never showed up. I guess it's back to minicom for me. Too bad, because this looked pretty good.
@Grant-B Yes absolutely, I replaced the board in mine with an older Eleks L1 (as it was spare). I removed the sockets from the old board to make the connection to the ribbon cable easier but I've seen others solder directly to it. You can also get a drop in replacement board that will work but it's ~$100. Anything that runs Grbl or compatible firmware will work directly with T2Laser.
YES your assistance would be most welcomed re T2L.
I must admit to having read some excellent reviews of this product, & if it is as good as it sounds, the it will be worth the money for sure.
I understand that T2L has some design features, but my main need is to simply import DXF files into it & ONLY cut... not interested in etching at all, as the laser is simply a work tool i built, not a toy & it urgently needs to get busy lol.
Please get in touch when you have got back from your holiday, it would be great to learn as much as possible - much appreciated Sir.
