Roadmap for the future


#1

Do you have a roadmap for the future improvements?


#2

We don’t at the moment as we’ve recently launched V2 which included lots of new features - public sketchbooks, machine subscriptions, web sockets, Scratch etc. We’re likely to just do small incremental changes where they make sense for a while so we can see the reaction to all of the new things we’ve put in. if you’ve got any specific ideas though do let us know…


#3

Ok fine. What about the implementation of the g02 gcode command?


#4

Yes, I’ll put that in the next version. There are a few features that are in 2.0.4 but aren’t documented yet so those will be documented also.

One example is M28/M29 that allow you to store a drawing in your Line-us. When you’re in ‘Red Mode’ pressing the button will draw the drawing. In fact the Rooster drawing that was on the postcard with your Line-us is already saved in all of the machines so if you go into Red Mode and press the buttons it should draw the Rooster for you.

There’s also a Webserver running on the Line-us, so (assuming you haven’t changed the name of your Line-us type http://line-us.local into a browser and you’ll get things like MAC address, calibration info etc.


#5

If you want to try saving drawings the commands are:

M28 Sn (where ‘n’ is the file number you want to save to, the rooster is in file 1 so M28 S1 will overwrite it)

Then, any Gcode will be saved to the file instead of being drawn.

M29 will close the file.

M30 Sn deletes file n

M20 lists the files
