Touch Screen to Smoothie Board

Last night we connected a touch screen raspberry pi via usb to the smoothieboard on one of our delta printers in the hackspace. Opensource software Smoopi designed by wolfmanjm coonected the two systems together using the platform kivy python. Since its opensource we can tailor the software for our application for a new cnc 3 axis machine which is still work in progress. This is good news as we can ditch the GLCD screens which you usually see as a for the smoothieboard for a full colour 800x600 touch screen. Some pictures below showing the screen in action, we were able to axis on the delta and home, further tests will continue.
