Continuing the discussion from [New Feature] New editing tools:
@koriamko can you please do some tests to find out if it is the file, the g-code, or UGS?
- Try carving a simple square inside easel
- Try Making a simple square in inkscape, importing it into Easel, then carving it
- Try Making a simple square in inkscape, importing it into Easel, then exporting the g-code and carving it in UGS
Can you write back what happens in each case?
Hi, Thank you so much for your prompt reply, I appreciate your time, The squares made in easel or inkscape worked just fine but the problem arose when I used the new arc tool on the points editor to make it circular, then my machine once again would stop at the first node?. same problem if i made the arcs in inkscape. I have used easel successfully for about a year with all sorts of complex shapes, this problem seemed to arrive with the new feature.
I built my own controller so I cant run the machine directly from easel. I always export to Grbl Controller which has worked fine so far. Next time I need a controller I will be buying the X-controller
Hi @Korimako is your controller running GRBL on an arduino and your own custom shield? What version of GRBL are you using?
@paulkaplan any idea if the new feature might have broken his file?
Hi, Yes I am using an Arduino with GRBL version 0.9 with a protoneer shield, thank you so much for helping with this.
Hi, an update on the previous discussion, The short version is that I am up and running again as I am using Universal Gcode sender instead of GRBL controller. I ran some further experiments with GRBL controller which still has some problems but since the UGS has no trouble I will leave it at that,
thank you for your time
Awesome! Easel now has gcode sending and the machine inspector if that is interesting to you.
That sounds exciting thank you, I will have a play
