Custom firmware for a Cricut Expression craft cutting machine

Similar projects worth following
My sister donated a dead Cricut Expression to me. I immediately took it apart, brought it back to life, and then decided to write new firmware for it. I got the inspiration from another project that was for the Cricut Personal. I used it as a launch pad to get the Expression working, so that I could cut directly from Inkscape using the GRBL plugin.

It is still a work in progress, but I've put it on the back burner in favor of my 3D Printer projects.

What works:

It cuts from Inkscape
LCD Works
Keypad works
Adjuster wheels work

Just need some ideas for future use. By printing from Inkscape, it kinda makes the keypad and LCD a mute feature because you don't really need any of that.

Enjoy this project?
