Ok, easel does not connect to my xyz carve (grbl 1.0g board)
stuck on the connecting to… screen
tried fresh install win 10
tried uninstall and reinstall all drivers and easel local
tried restarts and plugging and unplugging
tried an entirely different computer.
Can connect perfectly fine with UGS or such,
Reason i want easel to connect, my son likes making things and easel is easier for a complete novice to get used to before going for the uphill learning curve of proper CAD.
But alas. I cannot get it to connect, my comments here, on other groups ect remain unanswered.
I have no way to see what port easel local is looking at, on the laptop (lappy to run router alone) its com3, on my pc, com4.
updated grbl, made zero difference. I read on other posts people have same issue and downgrading to older easel local allows them to manually set com port… why dont they have that option currently? I am gonna have to try older drivers…
When I first got my machine I could not connect my primary laptop. I could download the .exe file but for some reason it would never connect to the machine. After over 6 hours with tech support we were never able to come up with a resolution. I am running windows 10 and tried several different browsers to no avail.
Reason I am wanting easel to connect is I want to show my young boy it, and get him using it, and transferring code, setting up on a more complicated system is a much steeper learning curve.
