I just received my snapmaker, bravo the quality is impeccable. But I have a basic question to ask you: What about Linux support?
The world of mackers is above all collaborative and respectful, Linux is the OS which is a wonderful representation of this ethic of collaborative exchange. Would it be necessary today, after more than 20 years of emancipation, that I return on closed systems, inflated with spy devices that are the OS owners? NO
I would like you to communicate to me, the tools “possibly see the sources” necessary to allow me to use in the end this beautiful machine the snapmaker, with the environment worthy of this quality namely Linux.
There are undeniably many users wishing to use Linux directly, where possibly ROS ‘Robotic OS’ with the Snapmaker. It would be advisable to set up an advanced users ‘dialogue space to promote a community of users by distributing the snapmakers’ design documents. The level of the signals and the pinouts between the controller and the various devices “screen, motors, detectors …”. Bus used (I2C, SPI, CAN, …) processors and the system used in the controller, snapmakers.
In short, all the documentary support necessary to federate a real community of advanced GeekSnapper users.
I consulted the github of “whimsycwd”, but the documentations are mainly in Chinese.
Director of a training center in robotics, I would like to be able to provide many snapmakers in the spirit that I have just stated.
Thank you for your attention.
