Hi, this is Mechstew! I love the EMC2 interface, and am new to milling,
and cnc control. I saw an article referring to a webcam center finder and figured it was worth a try. "After" making it, I could find no program to utilize it with EMC2 2.3.5, all of the blogs and posts i could find were also fruitless.
Having spent forty bucks on this round thing that I just finished butchering, Wal-Mart would not take it back now! I spent 2 weeks for trial and error to finally have a working 960 X 720 (pixel) window with a crosshair. I am neither a programmer nor a computer guru, I just want to make little pieces out for big pieces and this helps me to do it reliably. If you or anyone else is interested let me know and I will try to relay that information through this portal.
I am using a Logitek c300 with Ubuntu Hardy Heron, and lauch a .py file outside of EMC2 2.3.5.
P.S. I do not check my web accounts often (once/week), now its time for me to build!
