Sorry, didn’t mean that to sound snarky! I certainly want that kind of feedback. I can see how you got to that conclusion, i.e., “no text = unsuccessful startup.”
Right, but that UI never worked on Mobile or Tablets. So I had to go back inside to my desktop to actually see the alarm
I’m actually working on that in Makerverse, now. I now have it detecting the “position error,” and giving you a button to reset settings to defaults (and then re-start calibration).
That’s strange. It should be auto-created if it does not exist. What error were you seeing?
edit note I renamed the file to
.makerverse in the latest release. Better now than later!
The Baud Rate is a property of the firmware, not the Makerverse or the cable, and never changes. The Due firmware uses 38400, whereas the Maslow Mega firmware uses 57600, and my SainSmart uses 115200. You simply need to know this whenever you work with an Arduino device (just about every Arduino tutorial starts by saying “the baud rate is…”). Which is why I’m creating “machine profiles” so you don’t need to know it
Yes, that’s what I mean when I say “Machine Profiles.”
I assume you know they’re grayed because you need to press “Unlock.”
On the left, you’re right that the Maslow does not let you zero the Machine Position via the X-axis or Y-axis only. You need to home the X/Y axis together via Set Home. It’s a good idea to hide these buttons. I’ll get that in to the next release.
However, the zero of the Work Position should work. Are you sure it’s not working? What specifically happens when you press any of the right-side “zero” buttons after unlocking?
My interpretation: you’re running up against a lot of the features present in other CNC machines. These features may seem confusing at first, and it’s a good idea that I should work to make them not confusing. This will help everybody get started easier. But a lot of it comes down to “hide the stuff that doesn’t work on my machine.”
