File too large?

I have been trying to cut a 16"x16" 3D file from Aspire. The USG hangs up and seems as if it can’t process all of it. Has anyone else ran in to this?

Our PicSender has been tested to stream 10,000,000 lines of gcode reliably.

Nice! I think I will give that a try. Thanks!

Yes that’s what I have. It says it’s over 700,000 lines.

I’m running a demo of the picsender right now and it’s seeming to work well. I will let y’all know when Its done.

Make sure you use GRBL Z Code and select & set the Safe Z. If you Cancel the job, the Z axis will retract to the set Safe Z distance above your Z axis work zero before it travels back to your X&Y work zeros.

Yes I’ve done that. I did play with the pause/restart and it works good on the pause but my router doesn’t turn back on when I hit restart, only the steppers

The published versions of UGS have been able to handle unlimited file sizes for several months. Be sure you have the latest.

Don’t select Restart. Use Resume. Are you controlling the spindle on/off with the PWM from pin 11? When you select resume, the spindle should come on and dwell long enough for the spindle to spin up to speed before the axis’s start to move again.

Yes I meant resume. I’m using the wire from the original setup to power an SCR.

What S command value at the beginning of your file does it require for the spindle to come on?

I’m not sure. What would it be for your software? It seems very user friendly so far. I don’t modify much in my code so I don’t know where it would be.

Open your gcode file in a text editor. (Notepad) There will be a command at the beginning of the file like this. M3S12000 or S12000M3. Let me know what S value it has.


How do you open it in notepad? Sorry for the dumb questions but I’m not sure how to do that.

Find where your gcode files are saved in the File Explorer, then just double click the file and Windows will ask you what program you want to use to open it. After registering PicSender, you can then use the Editor button to open, view & edit the gcode files.

After I register? Ha! I see what you did there. I will take care of all that this week. My internet is acting up right now due to weather.

You can just open it with Windows Notepad as I explained.


We have a new v2.3.8 release that resolves the Resume spindle on issue The S value was not set high enough for the grbl version your using to change the PWM to 5v. Install it and please let us know how it works for you.
