Connectivity question

As I wait for my new Handibot to be delivered I was browsing the existing documentation and am not totally clear about getting a toolpath file created in Aspire/VCarve over to the Handibot. Is there still a usb port somewhere that I need to plug a PC with the SB control software into and run it like all of the other Shopbots, or do I copy it via wireless using the dashboard?

The FabMo dashboard is a web browser based program. You'll log into your tool and pull up its IP address in your web browser. Sending a cut file to the tool works about the same as attaching a file to an email. You click a button and locate the file on your computer. When on your phone you can also pull from something like dropbox if you keep your cut files "in the cloud"

Excellent. Thanks Brian. And the dashboard resides on the Edison?
...and you don't need to answer my questions here if it delays me from getting my Handibot. :-)

I'm teething on my 2.0 right now so I'll answer. Yes, everything is on sbc except for the cut files and even those seem to get cached. I have not tried a lot of devices but it looks like anything with a complaint browser will run it.
