Have been following many of the posts, but would see a great benefit as to know what works, how it’s connected to the cutter or the computer. What are the benefits and less desirables. Lastly, is carbide working for a feature release of such a device as a retrofit. .? Who answers please let me know the model number and or the source to buy if possible. Tom

A Logitech F310 is used for testing the actual game controller functionality:

or a custom keyboard:
or if using a Raspberry Pi, can control using a phone or tablet over a wireless connection using VNC.
