Slow progress on a simplified version using a pivoting z-axis. I realized that it's quite hard to exactly reproduce the Grbl settings that I used on the first version. But there are now exciting new options with Grbl running on ESP8266 or ESP32. I could for example use a smartphone to have the gcode generated by a webservice and then upload the whole resulting gcode to Grbl via wifi.
