NOTE: this tool is for Master (yet to be released 2.8) only.

I'm getting really close to having the 7i96 configuration tool working if anyone cares to look.

github.com/jethornton/7i96

Fastest thing at the moment is to open the sample ini file with the tool then make your changes to limits and axes etc.

This is the Axis tab where you configure the joints and axes. You can create a gantry configuration as well.

Last but not least the important tabs for Ethernet cards a way to find out if your PC is a good candidate for an Ethernet Mesa card.

The info tab you can get the CPU information and the NIC information.


The pc tab you can get the tmax value and with the CPU speed calculate the amount of the servo period it uses.

I am curious, why a separate tool rather than adding the board to pncconf?
