Loading multiple $$ grbl settings at once?

Don’t paste them — there’ve been a number of reports of this corrupting the EEPROM.

It should work to save them into a file, then send the file to the machine using a G-code sender.

Phil, it is a standard feature in our PicSender program.



Goko also allows you to export/import configuration files for Grbl. It basically sends every line of a file using a simple text file as the one you mentionned above.
If you want to take a look, it’s available on goko.fr

Here’s the deal. It doesn’t work for me either.

However, I did some testing and it seems that UGCS (and other senders) are too fast for grbl with the $ commands. Here is a technique you can use (worked for me, let me know if it works for you).

Place an empty comment line between each $ command in your file.

Here is a file I used for testing:

settings_with_comments_and_delay.nc (1.2 KB)

Good news. Yeah, my machine has some issue as it doesn’t send things out as fast as other people’s machines. I’ve got so much software on it no telling what is causing the issue.
