I’m not sure I’d like my CAM software writing firmware to my MPCNC unless Ryan himself was involved with setting up the parameters . Ramps and Marlin may be a pain with the Config.H set-up but it’s a one time thing and takes minutes. The benefit is the flexibility to configure for any hardware you may be running , a perfect match for a versatile CNC platform like MPCNC, and not just being tied down to one hardware configuration.

On the other hand, it is a simple solution for people who are strictly using their MPCNC for cutting/routing. I see the newer version of Estlcam support trochoidal milling toolpaths. They say it works with their firmware. Anyone know if Marlin can process the gcode fast enough to support this? I’d love to have that option if I ever need to mill soft metals.
