I’m having a major issue with the Arduino. I got the Maslow 10 days ago, spent the first weekend building the frame, sled, etc. Everything was working wonderfully, having made several cuts.
I engaged in a project this evening. The Maslow went to make the first cut and began traveling the cut path with no z axis adjustment. I immediately stopped the cut and told the Maslow to return to center. It did. I opened the z axis controls in ground control and attempted to remedy the situation with no response from the computer to the motor.
Within seconds I received a “timeout error” on ground control. I checked my cables and it looks like everything is clear. I checked the port on ground control. It’s correct.
I checked the lights on the arduino and everything is on (yellow on L light, green on arduino, green on the Maslow).
I unplugged the Maslow and reset the Arduino. Lights came right back on as good.
I quit ground control and opened up arduino. It read out “timeout”.
I then disconnected the usb cable and tried again. The message read, “timeout communicating with programmer”, “an error occurred while uploading the sketch”.
I then proceeded to delete the arduino software and firmware, completely removed it and all residual files from my computer and reinstalled from scratch. The same error message appeared.
Lastly, I got another computer (Mac) and installed the software and received the same message.
I’m at a loss. Please help.
