Remote for the xxl

has anybody had any luck find a remote for the xxl so you don’t need to use our laptop to control the cutter head.

By nature, grbl controlled machines need to be connected to a computer to stream the commands. A cheap windows tablet would do the job, or you could use a raspberry pi with CNCjs.


what you can do though, is buy a wireless (e.g. bluetooth) keypad, connect it to your laptop, and use that as “local” way to jog the machine, far from your laptop. Not sure about keyboard shortcuts/mapping in Carbide Motion, but I did that for UGS (see here)

For keyboard shortcuts please see:

You can use your phone to connect to the web interface.


bought this off the wish site it works great to use with my laptop far from any dust to move or use any shortcut keyboard commands.
