How do I get UGS to connect to the xcontoller/xcarve with USB? It gives me a no serial ports found error. Does this mean it will not work with a usb port?
Upper left hand corner of the ugs screen, make sure you are on the correct com port and max baud rate.
It was the baud rate, thanks
For some reason mine likes to reset itself on occasion to 9600 and NO com port.
Dumps all my macros too.
those are for setting zero “z” but I now have @CharleyThomas’s touch plate and will have a different manner of doing this once I can find the time.
You can take the contents of Charley’s G-Code file and put it into a macro for UGS, just separate the lines with a “;”. Set one up for a 1/8" bit another for a 1/4" bit…etc…
I’ll probably have a diferent file with gcode specific to each bit on my desktop and copy/paste it into the command line when I need it. If i understand it correctly…
I just set them up as a macro, so I can hit a button within UGS based on the different bits…the nightly builds allow you to name the macros now. So I don’t have to load a file to zero…just hit a button.
I didled a bit recently with a the latest nightly of UGS recently and had myself going around in circles. I needed the machine up and running pronto for an extended production run that i am STILL working on so went back to what was working.
When things get back to a dull roar I’ll revisit this.
