Is there a way to make a somewhat conversational interface with LinuxCNC?
I am planning on setting a zero against the shoulder of the part and pressing cycle start to prompt "SET Z AXIS STROKE" AND "SET FEED IN IPM". After entering the data, I want the table to reciprocate from zero to the stroke distance repeatedly. Then maybe have an interrupt button to back the grinding wheel out for checking size or changing parts.
Could some one lead me in the right direction for this?
