Scananything API?? >> Uccnc?

Post by robertspark » Sat Nov 04, 2017 9:45 am

As per the title, any chance of an API for scananything, so I can attempt to have a go at developing a plugin for uccnc?


(Happy to sign whatever NDA you require, I am in the UK so should not be complicated legally)

I have been working on a new API for Scanything/SheetCam connections to CNC controllers. The API and communications library is open source with a license that allows linking with both GPL and closed source code. Currently it is only used with the LinuxCNC version of Scanything but I will be porting it to the Windows versions of Scanything and SheetCam.

I am pretty tied up for the next month but after that I'll hopefully be able to make a start on the Windows side.
