It begins.
« on: November 10, 2014, 01:15:32 PM »
The start of a long time dream of mine to connect my code to the real/physical world.

I build R/C boats and aircraft from scratch . I have been trying to get a foam cutting plotter and a small 3D mill for ages.
I'm talking mill is more like a 3D engraver to make small plastic parts.

so I started learning Arduino ( UNO )  .  It has been amazingly simple , as its is almost pure C like language.  8)


I mounted the UNO and the bread board and did the 'duino version of hello world. LOL

Thanks to Charrua over at NG forums , my NB app can talk with ( to and from) my UNO ! . ( USB  port COM4 )

so for fun i test the Google G-Code sender app , and holy hey it works too !

Haven't seen you around for a while Prime.  I hope all is well :)

I've been looking into this Arduino stuff myself so I'd be interested to see how you're progressing.
