Early this year I bought myself a plastic extrusion head (plastruder) from Makerbot. It is fully assembled and ready to go but unfortunately I don't have time to mess around with it until the semester ends. Having the hardware talk to my current software is the tricky part, it is usually plugged directly to its own open-source CNC control board with its own open-source software. But since I already have a CNC control board, their software does not work with my control board nor my software does not talk directly to their hardware. There are a few work-around I've been reading online, the main one by using a Linux-ran software. This territory is fairly unexplored in the hobby scene so not too many information is available yet. As I don't have time messing with software, this tool head project will have to wait.
