Completed my unboxing and setup of the X-Carve (1000mm). The instruction were remarkable and easy to follow.
I have ran into a snag and I believe that it has to do with my controller. I have tried 3 different operating systems (Mac, Linux & Win10) with no luck connecting to the Controller. I have install the appropriate drivers for each, walked through the setup on Easel (easel.inventables.com/setup) and when I click “Confirm setting” it hangs. I can hear the motors clicking or locking but I do not progress past this point. I know there is at least a partial connection to my computer as a COM port is established.
With some back and forth emails with the inventables support team it was advised that I re-upload grbl following the instructions located here (https://inventables.desk.com/customer/portal/articles/2058884-how-do-i-re-flash-grbl-to-my-x-controller-arduino-) . In doing so, it fails to upload. Error “avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding” Went into my device manager and manually set my port speed settings to 115200 as recommended in other posts within the forum. Same result.
Went as far as re-assembling the x-controller. Also, tested the leads going to the E-Switch with an ohms meter and the E-Switch itself in the engaged and disengaged positions. All good.
Hopefully I’m missing something simple. Please advise as to what I can do to troubleshoot this issue.
Any information would be greatly appreciated!
