Goko - Free CNC Control Software - New version : Oct 04,2016

Edit : latest version description : viewtopic.php?f=6&t=5858&start=10#p65402

Hello,

For a few months now, I've been working a a desktop software to control TinyG and execute GCode files.
I'm now looking for beta testers to try and improve it.
I'm regularly testing it, but with my own workflow. I'd like to confront it to other people with different automatism.

Software feature :
- Free and open source,
- TinyG v0.97 control and configuration helper,
- Continuous Jog support,
- GCode 3D visualisation and execution (up to 4 axis) (see viewtopic.php?f=30&t=5349 )
- Software Digital Read Out,
- Execution time computation,
- UI Customisation (position, size, shown elements, etc...)
- Some other features such as Circle Center finder, and some more to come ...

Keep in mind that it's a test version. I've been personally milling with it (I only have access to my machine a few weekends in a month, so not very intensive).

Download link :
Download for Windows 32 bits
Download for Windows 64 bits

You can report issues on the Github page :
https://github.com/cncgoko/Goko

Targeted testers :
- User with TinyG v0.97
- User with enough experience with the Shapeoko and TinyG, to identify misfunctions,
- Most likely using Windows. It's cross platform but I only tested it under Windows 7. If user with other OS want to test it, it's possible.

If anyone is interested in a Linux or Mac version, please let me know. I didn't release it because I have no access to these environment so I could not even make any tests. But there should not be any issue. I'd like to validate it first before distributin.

Thanks

Thanks, let me know if you have remarks.

But keep in mind that it's not a CAD/CAM software...

Will you make the software available for the GRBL controller that came with the SO2?
Currently building a machine of my own design...

Psyko,

I took the software from the download link (64bit) and unzipped it to my desktop. Once I opened Goko it returned this error:

Hello folks,

Sorry I had no time to come back sooner.

Yes, I'm currently working on it (among other things). It should arrive shortly (hopefully within 1 month). I'll post an update when it's available.

@lledee Let's discuss it using PM. I'll post it back when we fix it.
