We need to do a screen share so I can see what is going on with your PC.

I'm in Los Angeles and its 1:30 pm now...I have time now or in about 2 hours. We can use www.join.me to link our PCs together. Email me with the code so I can join your session when you log into join.me.

Thanks...

www.AliExpress.com vendor Novel Life will send you the square plug...I bought a 1.6w laser diode from them...let me dig up a link for you.

UPDATE:

Here is the link. When you order tell them what kind of plug you need (white square) and they will send that one:

OK thank you..that looks fine.

Did you run the Set Factory Grbl Settings int the BCL COM Port tab yet?

Please install 1.8.0 j and then let's regroup and tell me what issues are still outstanding for you.

Thanks...

>If you check the screenshot I attached, I believe it's showing the welcome message you're referring to?

There is no screen shot attached from you that I could find?

Regarding your .mpt file, please use one of the standard gcode file extensions, .mpt is not a gcode file extension, please use .nc

Your gcode file tells me there is something wrong with your setup...I still don't think you have a correct hand shake and I still would like to see your welcome message. It may be something else but let's get the welcome msg issue out of the way first.

It's critical that I know what steps did you do to get this gcode? Please give me the steps so I can try them on my PC.

Sorry for all the trouble but we'll get it sorted out for you.

Thanks...

Sorry Marcus...late last night I found a bug in the left/right feed speed code...I accidently removed a line of code that should be there...I restored the line and uploaded the fix...please download the latest BCL install file 1.8.0j (the link is in my signature below) and see if that fixes your speed issue...if it doesn't, let me know and we'll keep working on it.

Regarding the backwards x axis...on the Jogging tab there is a checkbox to reverse the x axis...play around with this checkbox...sometimes I have to check it and I test jog, then I uncheck it and test jog and its now going in the right direction...so you play with that checkbox and you'll get it going in the right direction.

Any progress on the controller board?

>Also, if you look at the test piece, you'll see a long vertical line.

This bug has been fixed in the latest release 1.8.0 i Please download and install it. Thank you.

>I get the welcome message telling me it's the trial version and showing me my device ID.

The welcome messages does not display at the Trial dialog window at start up. The welcome messages displays when you connect to your laser machine. Please verify that you are getting the welcome message when you connect?
This link will tell you what the Welcome Message is: http://benboxlaser.us/index.php/topic,1248.0.html

I'm not sure that you realize the .mft file you uploaded is not gcode. You never have to show me this file as only BCL uses it.

There is no gcode file, but that's Ok because I don't need to see your gcode file.

I download the dxf file...thanks for that...it loaded perfectly into BCL and I generated gcode for it and it ran perfectly fine in the VLM. Nothing wrong with your dxf file.

Please make sure you run the Set Factory Grbl Settings int the BCL COM Port tab, please click on that link to run it. It will set the needed Grbl settings for you automatically. You need to be connected to your machine for this to work.

If these things don't get you working, let me know and we'll try a few other things.

Thanks...

BenCutLaser / Texts Dots Per Inch: 32 (CLOSED)
« on: January 14, 2017, 05:50:19 PM »
As an FYI, I don't think you need more than 32 set for Text Dots Per Inch.

See attachment.

If you're using a number larger than 32, you're probably generating too much gcode that is not needed. Try cutting back to 32 and see how that works.

I've found 32 is a good number for me to laser Text objects.
