Now you can use the new application devCnc Foam to drive a CNC foam cutting machine, within a Theremino controller.

See http://www.foamcuttingsoftware.com/eng/devcncfoam.asp

Are you using one of these yet?

Am not interested in a CNC device but for some other hardware I have.

It looks too good to be true, but, would solve a lot of issues I have been looking at.

Yes, I'm actually using both Theremino V3 (10 pin) and V4 (12 pin)

Hi, does this setup allow for wire heat control?

Yes, both as a switch or a PWM controller.

Hi Durone, thanks for the heads up on the Theremino. Love it for its simplicity and the approach they took. I will be able to use it on other projects and make my own software using the Theremino for IO.
Now starting to use it on my foam cutter. I would recommend it for others.

Actually Theremino is a solution looking for problems...
I liked the idea to use it for hot wire foam cutting, and I spent about 12 months writing software for it. I hope the simple, cheap and high performance Theremino master Usb will be more and more used by aeromodellers. It can be used of course also for Cnc milling, and a good, free and open source application (Theremino Cnc) is already available and well tested.
Theremino runs internally a compiled application (not interpreted application like Arduino), and can get advantage of the power of the Pc CPU for the most time consuming tasks (look-ahead, for example). In this way you can also have a powerful Cnc application running on the computers, so you can better control the cnc machine. But all the real time code is inside the Theremino master, so we have here a TRUE REAL time processing, without having to manage low levels system interrupt (like Mach3 does, trying to emulate a real time process in a NOT real time OS like Windows).

Hi Durone, what auto heat control circuit are you using? The same you posted a couple of years ago using an Arduino mega?

I didn't posted anything about Arduino.
You can use a OnOff electronic switch or a PWM controller, both of them are managed by devCnc Foam, as explained in the Help file
