I am currently running Ground Control v.73.
My machine is the 100% original first release (I haven’t even upgraded to the replacement arduino board Bar sent out early on, it’s still in its’ package). The software and hardware has been doinng what I’ve needed it to do, so far, so I haven’t pursued updating it, in fear that an update will cause issues.
That being said, I’m starting to need to cut a lot of shapes that are clearly overwhelming the buffer (lots of curves with virtually no straight lines to allow it to catch up). I can see the GCode whizzing by at a blistering pace until finally the router just goes off in its’ own direciton, leaving the programmed cut path.
Has there been any improvements that address this buffer issue? Or is there something that I can do to prevent is (i.e., slow the cut rate down?)
If I were to update the arduino, install the newest GC, and update the firmware, woiuld I have any issues? I haven’t kept up on virtually any of the discussion since late 2017.
