I just ordered a smoothieoard to drive my new CNC hotwire foam cutter. (And to use it later in a real CNC mil)
I know I won't need a full blown CNC software like Mach3 because smoothie will run the Gcode for me.
But how is the workflow going to be? I would not want to interact with the serial console and paste gcode myself.
The frontend softwares mentioned on the front page seem all very 3d printer centric.
I really would not mind having he tool axis plotted during a cut and at least some manual control options for homing axis and such.
And if a four axis foam cutter is too excotic with it'sgeometry. How would normal CNC mils be driven with smoothie?
