Menu inactive after sending gcode
« on: May 05, 2020, 09:50:04 AM »
I have a weird issue - after my gcode has been sent and the ending command is M30. T2Laser menu becomes inactive - it keeps saying 'Sending' and the only button I can press is Emergency stop. Is this normal?

No. M30 is not a valid Grbl command so will just hang, T2Laser is waiting for the command to be executed and a response to be sent which will never happen.

There should be no M30 if using T2Laser defaults.

This afternoon I noticed the same behavior of the software. I do not use code M30.
Sending hangs at 11%, hereby the code.

After press 'send' it keeps telling me 'Sending...' with a value of 11%

I thought X and Y always have a positive value. Can that be the source of the issue? I imported the dxf file and let T2Laser generate the code for me.

I cannot replicate this, you may want to Restore Defaults in the Help menu and try it but also why is it only 3mm? That's tiny!

It could be you have the wrong units at export, QCAD shows none are set and the paper dimensions are metric. T2Laser will default to metric unless the DXF says inches or you enable the force override option.

If it's "hanging" then T2Laser is waiting for the laser (Grbl) to respond. I tested your file on a Nano and ran it several times with no issue (no actual laser, just the Nano as that's all I have at the moment).

Thanks for the quick reaction. meanwhile I did a small test by using a pdf file as source, and that works fine.

(Indeed it looks like something to do with units. And no, it is not 3mm, must be 224 mm.)

I will update you in the next few days.

If you look at my screenshot you'll see it is correctly sized, I used the Force Conversion in Override DXF Units which you'll find in the Settings / DXF Option sub-menu.

Multiple times a day my laser cutter hangs when connected to T2 Laser. It keeps saying 'sending...', like described above.
This morning I tried to run the following code, without success. It keeps hanging at 52% twice.

Unplugging the USB, switch off power to mansa board, restarted T2 Laser, all no effect.

I hope to come to a standard way of working here to get my CAD files converted efficiently and cut correctly. At this moment the export to DXF results in very big nc files. Creating a pdf file from CADand then convert it inside T2 to dxf works much better. (less lines)

Does anyone has the same experience here?

I ran your G-code 6 times on my Nano, no errors.

Do you have USB power savings disabled?

What firmware are you using?

Enable Simple Streaming and see if that helps, if it does your Nano has a memory fault.

If you are having problems with DXF files, email the file to me so I can check it. As you know the last one imported correctly after I used the T2Laser settings to fix the export issues. This is the correct way to load a vector job rather than converting a PDF. Which CAD are you using to create the DXF files and what version are you saving them as?

OK, so the code is correct.

It wasn't. I corrected it and ran the code again. Halted at 52% again.

What firmware are you using?
Grbl 1.1e

Where do I do that? Is it a windows settings, T2 or ...?

Thank you. I will send them later.

I create them with Inventor 2020 and save the drawing as DXF release 12

Simple Streaming (which disabled using the buffer on the Nano) is enabled in the Settings / Advanced menu on the laser controller screen. It probably won't fix the problem if it's due to memory faults because Grbl can still error but it usually helps the machine run longer before tripping up.

Where did you disable the USB power savings? On my laptop I disabled it in Device Manager for the USB controller but still had problems and then found there was a BIOS setting, that fixed the problem so apparently some systems don't fully disable the power savings from the OS.

Do you have a replacement Nano, that's the simplest thing to swap and most likely the solution.

If you are having problems with DXF files, email the file to me so I can check it.

Hereby a dxf file which is not accepted / warnings by T2 Laser.

a) LocLoods-VakwerkLinks-6.dxf
Created in Inventor 2020, exported to dxf r12.

Warning1: Text entities were detected, recommended converting to exploded polylines.
Warning2: Complex or 3D Vertex entities were detected, re3commend converting to exploded polylines.

Result: text moved, and extra lines in bottom left near origin.

So I need to correct dxf file before sending it to T2Laser.

b) LocLoods-VakwerkLinks-6 mpedit.dxf
Same file as above (created in Inventor 2020, exported to dxf r12.) And then inside Autocad executed MPEDIT (coverts line objects to polylines) and TXTEXP (converts text objects to polylines) Last but not least save the file as dxf r12 again.

Warning1: invalid format
Looks like I have a wrong dxf version or so?

All my sheet models are created in Inventor and therefore I need this workflow. When I know what post Inventor save actions I need to do (with Autocad) to get a readable dxf file I can create a script for this and let it run automatically. So the MPEDIT and TXTEXP actions are fine for me.

I typically test DXF files with QCAD, but in this case neither will load. I also tried a couple of other common programs and had the same result (errors or nothing displayed).

I then loaded the original DXF into T2Laser with defaults and the text is ignored as that's in a block and not part of the actual drawing but it appears the actual paths loaded correctly. I then enabled the load blocks option and see the text, the line you are referring to is actually 2 other blocks in your drawing that are in negative space.

I loaded the DXF to TurboCAD and without changing anything saved it out using my default settings, it then loads correctly to T2Laser. Does your CAD program have similar export options? (I guess unblock and explode text are what makes it compatible)

I am more confused by your modified version, I do not get any errors (are you using v1.5y of T2Laser)? Using default it loads the design and text but the text which appears to be single line font has closed paths so the L has a diagonal line from the end back to the beginning, as you may know fonts can't be true single line due to the way they were designed so typically a single line font has a return path back over the top so you don't see this diagonal line, but as I can't load it to any other program I am unable to verify. This is something I would need to investigate further, it's probably defined in the DXF as a closed polyline but has open ends so T2Laser connects the end to the start. I could probably fix that, send me a simple DXF file with just a single L character and I can examine it further.

I replaced the nano, set all the grbl parameters and still hangs at 52%.

I use T2 1.5y

It stopped at the exact same %, that makes no sense. You installed Grbl 1.1e DEFAULT to the replacement Nano?

Enable Check Mode and test it, that sends the G-code to your Nano and the Nano processes it as normal but does not actually output signals. It is significantly faster so will tell you a lot on what's causing the problem.

I got the feeling it has nothing to do with my hardware. Like you said, two machines stopping at same place. That is strange. 
I have to stop the search now, family is waiting for diner. :)

Thanks for your time so far Zax. Have a nice evening as well.
