Mooz GBRL support


#1

Could Mooz release info related to gbrl support? I tried using lgbrl (lasergrbl.com) to control Mooz directly through the USB port without luck. However, the gcode produced by lgrbl kind of worked if I loaded it to a flash drive and started it on the Mooz. Not every command seems to be understood by Mooz (but good enough to make it “work”). I did however have to copy and paste the gcode header (including comments!) from a gcode file produced by Mooz studio in order to correctly home the laser at start. Are you actually using comments in the gcode to control the Mooz behaviour when doing laser engraving?


#2

Sorry, Mooz dosesn’t have GBRL support.


#3

What type(s) of .gcode are used for CnC and Laser? Which programs other than Moozstudio are supported?


#4

ArtCAM can be used to generate CNC gocodes, but it is a very hard to use software


#5

Gcode generated by Carbide Create works fine with the Mooz CNC router. Carbide Create is easy to use but obviously has limited functionality (although quite impressive).


#6

Which programs would you suggest for the Mooz laser in addition to Mooz studio (which at the moment have very limited functionality). What I at least would expect is the possibility to do vectorization in order to reduce the toolpath necessary to laser engrave. Raster laser engraving (as the only thing Mooz studio supports at the moment) is not good enough since it takes far to long to laser engrave even the smallest samples.


#7

Can we just get the gcode commands and what they relate too used for the Lazer startup sequence so we can use inkscape+gcodetools / camotic / whatever we like please.

We just need each of the G commands and the property needed to set them. If this was provided as part of the Doc’s/On the FAQ this would be helpful rather than trial and error/reverse engineering.

I’m using inkscape and camotic for generating paths and manually replacing the Z command offset with the Lazer on command.

Best starting point will be to load a couple of simple test files in both the mooz supplied programme and grbl then diff the results and figure out the differences which count.

In our FB group, some backers have successfully used laserWEB to do vector engraving. We will upgrade Moozstudio to support vector images soon.
