CAD Software / Re: Train yourself with "Estlcam"
« on: September 17, 2017, 07:46:11 AM »
As an FYI, about a year ago I contacted the developer and asked if he was interested in making some modifications to get his software to work with our laser machines. His answer: No.

I was going to say try 80 and if that doesn't work, try 100.

Did you calibrate your laser tool?

Here's my update:

After complete deinstallation of BCL including manual cleaning of registry i reinstalled BCL 2.5a. Now it's working, but, as ta1dr wrote, only if i use a untouched bitmap. If i use the commands ImageSettings or EditImage, i get always the error described in my first post.
Resizing of bitmaps would be necessary for many works with the laser so i hope, Ralph will fix it soon.

Please install 2.5b. My previous post I added a second update note you may not have seen.

You stated 25.a fixed your issue and now you just have a com port connection issue, is that correct?

If you are still having other issues, please post the steps so I can try to reproduce. If it is only com port connection issues, did you try my suggestion of checking your parameters against my settings, as I posted an attachment showing my com port settings.

Thanks...

General Discussion / New laser machine

About $400.00 depending on options.

Their controller board is a Smoothie board.

He said they use the 'finishing passes' to 'clean out the residue'...I think a fan blower should do the same or similar thing.

I tried off-line  only genarate g-code  but  no any gradient ( I test it E2 Engraving Test.png)  I look gcode  only S0 and S255
also imageedit and imagesetting  not work give error...

Paul and I are having a look at this.


UPDATE: I'll have a fix for this within the hour.

UPDATE: BCL 2.5b fixes this bug. This had to do with the Image Edit window and was my fault in the code. It has now been corrected. Sorry about that.

Updated to BCL 2.5a

Now , the problems begin in the first step:

COM Port -> Connect

Error:

----------------------------------------


I can connect OK (see attachment).

It looks like you have a stop bit set wrong?

Look at my com port connection parameters in the attachment and tell me if you are using the same parameters?

Thanks for the steps. I was able to reproduce the error and therefore fix the bug.

Please down load 2.5a from my signature link and install that one. That should fix it for you.

I already told you that you cannot load an image file without having a dxf file. With BCL 2.3 that you have, you have to click New dxf file and then load it. With BCL 2.4, I fixed it so the image link is not enabled unless there is a dxf file already loaded. You cannot just load in an image.

@MarcusJ

I added a checkbox in Seup so you can have BCL load a default 'Blank.dxf' file if you wish.

Also, when you add a Text object or an Image object, BCL won't automatically save it. You have to manually save it.

These two new changes will be out in the next release 2.4.
