Arduino GCode Interpreter

Arduino GCode Interpreter is the recommended Arduino firmware for Contraptor projects. It interprets G-Code commands sent from the computer. The official page for Arduino GCode Interpreter is here: Arduino G-Code Interpreter and it's useful to get an idea what it does and how to configure it. However, the release we're interested in is Chris Meighan's rewrite of the interpreter. It implements several nice things that original interpreter doesn't have, for instance hardware timer stepping, acceleration, true arcs, G-code lookahead.

You can get the firmware here:

Couple of notes:

  • It works with Arduino Duemilanove and should work with subsequent Arduino boards, but it's too big for Diecimila.
  • The baud rate is hardcoded at 38400, you can change it if you want
