For 30 half’s. Cut all the eggs in 1/2 and select the 30 best looking half’s. Put the 30 egg half on tray and cover with plastic rap and chill.
Take 6 yokes and the remaining 3 egg whites and put in a food processor with mayo and mustard and vinegar, salt and pepper to taste. Blend everything and scrape the side and blend again. Mix up gelatin and water and heat for 10 to 30 seconds in microwave to dissolve the gelatin. Add to egg yoke mixture right away and mix up quickly. Put all in a piping bag and chill in fridge for 30 minutes. Pipe a generous amount of the egg yoke mix in each half and cover and chill again until ready. If not covered the egg yolk will dry out.
My Arduino is not accabale right now but I wanted to look at a new GUI or gcode sender program for Grbl called SourceRabbit GCode Sender. I already had the simulator compiled and ready to go and the next step was just to find a way to connect both together. I found that the program socat can do just this:
socat -d -d pty,raw,echo=0,link=/tmp/ttyV0 pty,raw,echo=0,link=/tmp/ttyV1
This creates two virtual serial ports with the names /tmp/ttyV0 and /tmp/ttyV1 and connect both together. Now I just need to direct the output and input of Grbl to one of the virtual serial ports:
./grbl_sim -n > /tmp/ttyV0 < /tmp/ttyV0
To test if this works I can use a command line terminal program like miniterm and connect to the other virtual serial port
Now that everything is working I can finally test the new SourceRabbit GCode Sender program.
I’m using chrubuntu on a acer 710 since a long time and it works well, but sometime I ran out of ram and the PC freezes, this happens a lot with Chrome if I open multiple tabs. I was just looking for ways to limit Chrome ram uses but stumbled on the zram stuff and it looks like this helps. I was able to open 15 tabs with different pages and no crash.
I did find imagecarve a GPL V2 open source program. After mapping the Z axis to S spindle values it looks like the g code it spits out could work with my laser. I only did test this with the greate grbl simulator, but I would guess after some more tweaking it should work on the real machine too.
