Of course I checked Aminet but it's an old version. The ScummVM page doesn't even OS3. We should fix this.

I had an ATOnce+ back in the day but never a ACA500.

I don't think this will work. The ATOnce plugs in the internal 68000 'DIP style' CPU socket. The 68000 is moved onto the ATOnce board.

You would use Cura etc to generate the G-Code. The Amiga would simply send this to the printer. I'm currently installing a MKS Gen L board on my printer. It has an AUX connector.
