    Script Wiki?

    Any plans to add a wiki, or similar feature, for sharing useful and creative TNG2 scripts? This could really unlock the true potential of this software for each user. Perhaps this could be added as a new category within this same forum.

    A Wiki such as this could be beneficial for script authors and users; users could offer use-based feedback to authors, and together, this effort would lead to increased flexibility, features and overall script usability.

    From my perspective, the real power of TNG2 is the potential to customize the software to each user’s unique situation . . . using scripts.

    There have been multiple instances where a forum participant has developed a script that they were willing to offer freely for benefit of other users. This type of interaction could benefit the TNG2 user community as a whole.

    Is this a possibility?

    Sounds like a very good idea.

    I have a bunch of modified/extended scripts that might be of interest to other people.
    Up to now I never published them, primarily as I'm not sure about what kind of license needs to be included as they are partly based on the original TNG2 scripts and on the other hand I never had a place in the internet to do this (Github would have been my goto but this would have a somewhat limited range)

    Best Regards,
    Klaus

    Re: Script Wiki?

    As I got a few question if I would like to share my profile settings and script I reached out to PlanetCNC for clarifying the license issue. They are OK with publishing custom code based on the original scripts and did not request to include any kind of license.

    So I decided to upload my complete Profile to GitHub:

    Klaus ... thanks for taking the lead on this .... very cool. Should we start our own blog? We could get it hosted on our own, have a group of members manage the content and even invite PlanetCNC to participate where they see fit. Be great to create a platform that allows users to solve their particular issues or achieve whatever capabilities they desire thru community participation.

    Thanks for sharing your work, Eric

    Klaus:

    Thanks for providing your extremely useful scripts.

    I do not have any form of programming skills, or knowledge, so your scripts will be extremely helpful to me. It also appears that other users will find them equally beneficial, as well.

    I should be able to use your scripts as a template, and then (perhaps) be able to make some minor modifications to help further customize each script to satisfy my exact requirements.

    Excellent work.

    Thanks again for your generous contribution!

    Thank you all for the kind words.
    However please don't overestimate my contribution. I mainly extended the scripts provided by PlanetCNC with some additions that I find useful.
    While I have some programming background due to working in the IT industry I'm fairly new to GCODE programming.
    Personally I think understanding GCODE is much more important than having extensive programming skills when one wants to modify the scripts. The original scripts, together with the examples from the installation directory and the GCODE pdf document are you best sources of information if you want to get deeper into programming PlanetCNC.
    And most important: Test everything in Simulation mode first and with single step activated on the Machine next ;-)

    Thank you ScorpionTDL. A really appreciate your effort.

    Many times I wonder, why more users don't use these capabilities. As mentioned - the key is understanding g-code. And this is first step that you need to do if you want to make useful scripts.
    I'm here to help you all.

    I have been contracted to develop numerous scripts for a multitude of purposes and therefore I cannot make them available. If we where to take it a step further and set up a blog I will gladly contribute my expertise. Eric
