    I need to upload a photo of my 7 in. Android tablet running my Robo. Works great! There is a G-code simulator in the play store and a full control version for around $5 or so. I slice on my laptop or desktop and copy the code to the tablet via ftp. Since I had the tablet gathering dust anyway, it did not cost all that much. I did have to build a cable, though...

    I'll try to remember to post that this weekend, if anyone is interested.

    Sorry it took so long to get these up, but here they are. You can sort of see the cable I'm using (hacked at home from old USB cables). There are plenty of places to find how to do this - just duckduckgo it. :) So far I have had no problem with this setup. And it frees up my laptop I was using before this.
