Is there a way to make the ground control remember where your previous cuts were on the plywood? The idea is so that you can do a new cut on the same piece of plywood with a visual on where you can and cannot cut.
There is a thread/(s) on this. It has came up in the past. It is in development notes but has not been a priority. Great minds …
There is also an active development on GitHub of a ‘background image’, projected in GC to show you were to place the next cut.
You have to name your sheets and somehow load that back to the software.
I draw a ply sheet first in CAD and place the parts with coordinates. I can load these files again a place another part. Same thing, but different.
It’s a wonderful idea. It would be a solution that is well worth the work. A lot off the work that you guys are doing is ground breaking. There is no book on how to do this.
For the background image, no naming/tracking is necessary. You need 4 dots on the machine for alignment (if they’re larger colored lights, you can set it up so it auto-aligns the image for you, and a way to get the image into the computer; see this issue for a discussion:
Lots of me talking because I’m learning how python works and how GroundControl is put together (scroll to the bottom to see a good picture on what it really looks like).
I’ll be glad to answer questions!
