Face Milling "wizard" for GCode Sender 4-Axis

We "cnc" parts on daily basis and many of these parts needs a surface milling on their underside. To perform this surface milling operations we so far used CAM software to generate the gcode.

In version 1.2.0 of GCode Sender 4-Axis, we added the "Face Milling" utility in order to perform easy and fast facing operations without the use of CAM software.

The Face Milling utility is located under the "Tools" menu  and you can try it by downloading GCode Sender 4-Axis from our website.

End of Support for the "classic" GCode Sender

The course of SourceRabbit GCode Sender began in 2015 when Nikos Siatras ( GitHub , Twitter ), 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 the classic GCode Sender will remain available on GitHub for everyone who wants to see or use the code but unfortunately we will stop supporting it.

Since today (2021-04-20) you can download the SprutCAM 4-Axis GRBL post processor for free from our website's downloads section. You can find the SprutCAM 4-Axis GRBL post processor under the Help Section on our website

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.
