CNC Extruder Overview

This is a simple adaptation of a Wade-style extruder with a minimal control system and an exceptionally simple Arduino program. It is intended to hook into existing proprietary CNC systems by being turned on and off as the "Coolant" or "Pump" or suchlike, for which most CNC machines provide Gcodes. It does not do fancy acceleration as this would require too tight an integration with existing proprietary CNC machines. If you have an Open one, then the task is much simpler and you can reprogram it as a giant RepRap. If you cannot or do not want to change the code, use this hack.
