We’re setting up a Nomad for light manufacturing. Basically we’re going to mill a single slot in one of 44 locations. I want to make it super simple on the operator so we have a touchscreen set up with a custom interface with an array of buttons and they just have to load the part then jab the screen and it just works.
My question is how should we go about feeding it to the machine? My first thought is to have this little program output gcode directly into the MDI interface on Cabide Motion. Has anyone done something similar or is there another method (.dll, API) that I’m missing that makes more sense?
I’m code illiterate so I apologize if I missed something obvious.
