I’m very new to CNC. I just started learning about 2 weeks ago, and I’m slowly catching on to things. I’ve done a few signs and candy trays, but I’m eager to do some 3d stuff. My problem is I can’t seem to get Easel pro to connect/recognize my machine ( Shapeoko pro-XXL) I was under the impression that I could plug into my laptop set up a few things and go. I guess I can’t be so lucky.
I’m not sure if this image will show but I uploaded it to show where I’m stuck on.
When I plug in the laptop to my CNC I go through some setup and also it does not list my model in the machines list so I check off other? I get to this page and it just sits there. It says “(connecting to other GRBL) turn on your machine & plug-in USB cable” and that’s as far as I get.
I’ve seen many videos of people using my machine with easel and they say it’s very simple to use but there is nothing i can find for software set up. I want to use easel because it seems to have great ratings and is supposed to be very user-friendly lol. Thank you.
