It is the software that controls your Maslow machine, it works in conjunction with the control board. Ground Control is where you will load your G-code file for the machine to start cutting your project. The following are some of the basic functionalities of Ground Control
- CUTTING UP YOUR DESIGNS.
- POSITIONING YOUR PROJECT EXACTLY WERE YOU WANT IT TO BE CUT ON THE BOARD
- STOP, PAUSE or QUIT a running task
- JOG THE SLED ON THE BOARD using manual controls (arrow keys)
- TROUBLESHOOTING THE SYSTEM.
NOTE: Ground Control is a special purpose software created from the ground up for the Maslow CNC machine (not generic). Its main purpose is to CALIBRATE the machine and SEND G-CODE to the control board. There is NO gain in using other modified/hacked generic open source software to just send g-code and lose the ability to properly calibrate your machine along the way. We highly recommend using GroundControl or Webcontrol.
