So my buddy and I are currently running the machine on a Macbook Pro, which works pretty well. However, keeping the computer in the dust filled shed while the machine cuts isn’t efficient (or good for our lungs). We have an older Microsoft Surface that we hope to use but we’re having trouble installing ground control. Anyone have the same issue or possibly a solution?
Unfortunately, no. It will run Ground Control just fine, but would not connect to the arduino. It kept cycling through “connected on com1” “connection lost”. I tried with an external powered USB hub as well, but no dice. Perhaps if I had more time to troubleshoot and more knowledge of USB protocol I could figure something out, but in the end, I have an old laptop I can dedicate to the cause.
