README

grbl_ros ROS2 CI

A simple ROS2 package for interfacing with a grbl device.

Currently supports: - polling status of grbl device - sending plain GCODE commands using ROS2 service

Supported Platforms

All Tier 1 platforms = Windows 10, Mac OS X, and either Ubuntu 18.04 or Ubuntu 20.04 OS | ROS 2 Version | ------------ | ------------- | All Tier 1 platforms | Dashing Diademata | All Tier 1 platforms | Eloquent Elusor | All Tier 1 platforms | Foxy Fitzroy | All Tier 1 platforms | Rolling Ridley |

Dashing and Eloquent target Ubuntu 18.04 while Foxy and Rolling target Ubuntu 20.04.

How to use

The grbl_ros package exposes two major functionalities to ROS: pose tracking of the GRBL device and sending commands to the GRBL device.

This package publishes a transform (aka tf) to the most recent machine coordinates received from the GRBL device. This allows for other ROS nodes to "know" where the machine is which can help enable many different functions.

Secondly this package runs two ROS2 actions: send_gcode_cmd and send_gcode_file. Both actions do what they say they do and enable the user to monitor the status of these actions as they happen.

Getting started

Quick start:

# for Ubuntu
sudo apt install ros-<your-distro>-grbl-ros

Fork and clone the repository if you'd like to compile it yourself. Once cloned, you can now build your workspace by running the following from your workspace's root directory:

colcon build

Testing

Unit tests are run on every PR and every release across every supported platform for each ROS2 release. Refer to the "actions" tab for this repository to see these tests yourself.
