CNC Router Tips Podcast Episode 61
IN this episode we talk with my friend Mike Gencarelli about CNC automation. Mike Gencarelli is an experienced tool maker, automation expert, software developer and has probably one of the most interesting garage workshops.
Gencarelli writes about his adventures on his website https://mygarageshop.com/
where he displays his projects and talks about his machine shop which includes everything from CNC Router Table, Plasma cutter to milling machine.
Mike has built quite a wide variety of automated machines in his past. His work on an automated parachute harness sewing machine got him noticed Later he began work on a plasma table with a dual chamber water table and a removable 4th axis.
Mike Gencarelli decided that he wanted to automate some common CNC options to make them work better with Mach3. He developed software which allowed him to use multiple wifi relays to turn his equipment off and on. He hooked up his duct collection system, lights and water pumps to his SmartScreens Interface for Mach3 . SmartSreens for Mach3 integrates the control of simple to add Expansion Relays and Smart Wi-Fi Devices which can be controlled by SmartScreens through Mach3 via buttons on the screen, and MCodes in the GCode.
