Re: Upgraded to Picsender 3.4.2 - now with problems?

Sorry, have reread you message. Seems you have found a bug. Try again, but DO NOT click the "$C" button. Make sure it stays reading "Inactive" as above and you should be OK. I will get a fix out later today. My apology and thanks for letting me know.

Re: Upgraded to Picsender 3.4.2 - now with problems?

What is your "previous setup?" An earlier version of PicSender? What you are describing sounds as though grbl is in a "locked" state waiting for the homing ($H) function to be initiated. You should get a startup message in the Messages box that reads, "Reference Home ($H) is...

Re: Continuously Jog

Happy to report to future readers that Joe's issue was caused by a custom compiled version of grbl that had been loaded onto his system instead of a standard version. After updating to the latest official release of grbl (ver. 1.1h 20190825), Joe reports all good now.

Re: Continuously Jog

Sorry Joe, I can find nothing in PicSender to cause you not to be able to use continuous jog with your X/Y axes. I did fix a couple of more things I found and have posted version 3.4.2 for downloading and updating. Please try it when you can and let me know how it does. I am not giving up and will g...

Re: Continuously Jog

Thank you. I do not have a Demon controller, but that should not matter. My test machine is running the same grbl you are (1.1f) and I even used your grbl settings (except for $3=6 - I have to use $3=2 to reverse the Z axis).

Doing more testing. Will post back later.

Re: Continuously Jog

I just noticed something in your video. Please try this test for me.
1 - Home your machine after connecting with PicSender.
2 - Click the blue Zero X/Y/Z buttons beside the DROs to set the DROs to zero (0.000).
3 - Try Continuous Jog. Does it work?

Thanks.
Edit: Email also sent.

Re: Continuously Jog

Thanks for the update. My apology for the late reply. Unfortunately I have been unable to replicate your jogging issue. I'm sure there is a solution, but without the ability to make it happen here, I am stumped at this time. We have had no other users reporting this issue to date, so I am wondering ...

Re: Continuously Jog

PicSender version 3.4.1 is released today for download and installation. Fixes a metric bug, and an obscure homing bug.

Re: Continuously Jog

Joe, I have sent you an email with a link to my personal Dropbox folder containing a test version of PicSender. We are having some unknown problems getting this test version uploaded to our web site. I am not sure the test version addresses your issues with Continuous Jog as I can not replicate your...
