NEW TUTORIAL: Run an X-Carve CNC Machine Wirelessly with a Raspberry Pi

I recently picked up an X-Carve CNC router. Its a great tool, but Inventables’ web based CNC software, Easel, currently requires a constant connection from a Mac or Windows based computer in order to send commands to the X-Carve over USB. This tutorial will show you how you can free up your main computer while the X-Carve is running by using a Raspberry Pi as a bridge to wirelessly send commands to the X-Carve’s Arduino Uno. We will also use a Powerswitch Tail to automatically control the main power to the X-Carve when Easel launches in your web browser.
