    I have been working on my controller-based gcode sender. I’ve gotten it to read a file and print it to serial. I haven’t tried connecting the serial output to the grbl controller yet. Does anyone know if I’m going to need to slow down or otherwise regulate the stream of gcode coming from the sender? It’s dumping the data from the file as fast as it can (well, 9600 baud, anyway). Seems like it would overflow the buffer pretty quickly. I’ll try it tonight, just wondered if anyone had any insight.

    I’m thinking I’m going to steal the glass out of this one.

    It will need to be throttled. I think it uses some sort of send/acknowledge to make sure the commands get there. I would try to find a simple gcode sender and see what they are doing.

    Karl, you’re using grbl, right? There is also a way to get state by sending ? Or something. That might be useful for you to parse. It’s getting more complicated. Have you tried looking for an Arduino library that does gcode sending?

    Hi Jeff, thanks for the suggestion. I couldn’t find a gcode sending library, but I have found some articles about xon and xoff handshaking. Grbl sends an OK message after it receives each line, I think. Still researching.

    Dang, I don’t think I’ve had Ramen in 40 years… I’m more likely to drop a few bags with a pork chop, some thyme and butter in each into the sous vide pot in the morning and take one out each time I get hungry. 😉

    Bill your missing out, I just got a bag of 30 packets, maybe I’ll send you some. I am in love with my Sous vide as well though, I spend more on steaks now because I can’t possibly screw them up, even got a bbq with the searing grill on it for $150 at Home Depot….so good, and so easy.

    I started with the Presto electric pot method and upgraded to my Nomiku when they launched on Kickstarter. Between that and my pressure cooker I have the bulk of my cooking handled. 🙂 I did a salmon last week that was a big hit (I have a friend who has a Native American renter that provides him with a fish every month)…

    Lets make a food thread, all this talk is making me hungry and I need ideas.

    @karl, etc. I cant find where we were talking about having the Arduino nano stream the gcode, but there are gcode commands for loading and starting a gcode file:

    You’d still need an SD card reader, but it would be a lot easier than streaming it from the nano.

    Heh, boiled meat.  Reminds me of a guy I know, makes the best hotel food there is!

    Never boiled, I tend to run closer to 130-135F. 🙂

    Just a small update. I decided to try “chicken of the land” instead of fish sticks today. I approve.

    Or is it, “tuna of the land?”

    Ha, those noodles are good. I have had them a bunch recently.

    Sneak Peak, I’m going to bed. lrgb

    Oh man! When is this coming out? Also will the height be able to be adjusted for 3d printing?

    Love the design!

    I’m not really sure how you would get the steel ball to 3D print… Maybe by compacting the layers of baking soda? 🙂

    Here’s where to go if you want to build one…

    I just saw the table picture. That is helpful, but the other side isn’t the same, right? Also, it doesn’t account for the bottom that stick out on that side.
