    Hey all,

    I’ve spent a few months working on an Axidraw Controller for Processing, and I finally put it up [on Github ](https://github.com/chrsmlls333/AxidrawProcessingClient “on Github “) now that its pretty reliable.

    Features
    * GCode support (partial)
    * Live position and progress feedback
    * Preview with Zoom
    * Flipping for standard XY coordinates to plotter coordinates.
    * Efficiency calculation and time estimate.
    * Settings testing (pen toggling, speed adjustments, etc)

    ToDo
    * Press ‘?’ for help.
    * Settings persistence, loading and saving.
    * Acceleration! Help Wanted!
    * Smoothing lots of small movements. Help Wanted!
    * UI refinements. Possible collapse to one window? Non-processing GUI Library?
    * Queue modification, starting and ending at preset points in queue.
    * Threading serial communications and/or canvas drawing. Help Wanted!
    * Live GCode object queuing for generative performances.

    Its a little rough around the edges but it works, let me know your thoughts and contribute if you can!

    Neat; I’ve added a link to it from our documentation wiki.
