[Press Release] SourceRabbit stops supporting the “classic” GCode Sender

ATHENS, GREECE —Jun 13, 2021—
We announce that as of today, SourceRabbit, stops supporting the open source GCode Sender software.

The course of SourceRabbit GCode Sender began in 2015 when Nikos Siatras, CEO of SourceRabbit, decided to build the controllers of the company's CNC machines, on the GRBL firmware. From 2015 until 2021, the GCode Sender was improved and acquired new features that were fully compatible with the CNC machines we manufacture. At the beginning of 2021 we started to build a new multi-axis software, GCode Sender 4-Axis, which replaced the "classic" GCode Sender and which we will fully support from now on.
The source code of GCode Sender will remain on Github to anyone who wants to see or use the code.

GCode Sender 4-Axis Launched

After our engagement with GRBL for ESP32 we decided to expand the capabilities of our GCode Sender and create a new control software for 4-Axis CNC Machines. Our new GCode Sender 4-Axis , which is now available for purchase through our website, replaces our old 3-axis software, is fully compatible with the classic 3-Axis GRBL for AVR, the new Grbl_Esp32 and of course the SourceRabbit 4-Axis CNC Motherboard . We plan to implement many new tools and features to the GCode Sender 4-Axis. On our next update we will add a new better User Interface (UI). Stay tuned.
