    Very nice addition

    Posted by GLENN on Jan 12th 2021

    This is a very nice addition to any CNC build. For me it's supper handy as my shop is separate from my house, no need to lug a laptop back and forth. Unit is very responsive, sleek, and does almost everything the laptop running OB control. Only reason I gave it a 4 was because of some cosmetic issues. Look forward to future updates for this.

    OpenBuilds INTERFACE perfect replacement for a laptop

    Posted by Juan on Jan 11th 2021

    I've had a few days to play with the OpenBuilds INTERFACE and it has been a great tool to help accelerate my productivity on my CNC. The ability to run my jobs through interface without having to use a laptop has been a great experience. Intuitive UI, especially if you have previously worked with OpenBuilds CONTROL, makes it every quick and easy to get going. A neat feature that is a part of INTERFACE is the ability to use your WIFI network to upload gcode direct to the device's connected usb drive. I can work on a job on my PC and sent it to INTERFACE so it'll be ready to load when it's time to run the job.
