The package consists of the software(Arduino firmware and GRemote), structure assembly instruction and program instruction.

###Brief Procedure

  1. Download and install Arduino-1.0.5,http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software

  2. Download the software package and decompress it,https://github.com/Makeblock-official/XY-Plotter-2.0/archive/master.zip

  3. Connect Me baseboard to computer with micro USB cable.

  4. Open GCodepraser->GCodeParser.ino by Arduino IDE. Click Tools->Serial Ports, choose COM XX (Not COM1 and COM2). Click Tools->Boards, choose Arduino Leonardo. At last, click "upload" button on the right-top corner. alt text

  7. Now, you could control the XY-Plotter 2.0 by mouse and keyboard. And, you can also run it with Gcode. You could generate Gcode file by another software (dxf2gcode(https://code.google.com/p/dxf2gcode/) or any other capable). You should save the Gcode file with .cnc and open it by GRemote.

For more details, please refer to the software instruction.

###How to DIY

If you want change the source code, you could find it in GRemotFull/source/GRemote.pde.

  1. Download and install Processing-2.1.2. http://processing.org/
  2. Install the Processing library, controlP5 -- copy the whole folder to C:\Users\xxx\Documents\Processing\libraries
