[github.com] This is the link I have found, but how do you install the script?

Sadly, right now if you are running FabMo you don't. You can run the crv., index your board and run it again, though. same results just no wow factor.

Thanks Mark, just the answer I did not want to hear...

I don't have the Handibot to verify this, but it seems to run on my Intel Edison setup if you edit the .sbp file (Auto Rail Maker.sbp) and change the two MSGBOX lines where it prompts to release and clamp the material to use a PAUSE preceded by a comment line to prompt the user.

For example:

'Release hold down clamps so we can slide the material over.


'Clamp material back down for the next cut.

Make the modifications and then submit the job from Job Manager and specify the location of the Auto Rail Maker.sbp file that you modified.

However, if I tried to preview the job, nothing is previewed and Job Manager quit working for me until I restarted fabmo.

Can't figure out why the file is causing Preview and Job Manager problems.

[Edit] It seems that Preview does not like the GOTO statement in the .sbp file.

I've tested gclayton's mods on a Handibot and it seems to cut fine, but definitely causes an ugly crash if you try to proview it.

My guess is that you are correct...that the GOTO is causing it distress
