Re: Issue with Probing

Did the G91 work OK in your QuickCode? If not I need to do some tests when I return home.

OK, then the 'G90' in your code will cause a move to the absolute (machine) location. It will not do as you want. You need to use 'G91' (relative) positioning, which moves x distance away from current position.

Re: Issue with Probing

Re: Issue with Probing

Please post the Quick Codes that you are using to cause this issue to occur. From your description it sounds like GRBL is maybe being changed from G91 to G90 mode. John Champlain EDIT: Sorry, I forgot that if trying to jog in g90 mode, PicSender should popup a warning message. So perhaps something e...

Re: Version History

My apologies. I just found your post. There is no publishable update history. I do keep a private development detail history so I can backtrack reported bugs.

Re: Triquetra

Yes, it make zeroing your bit to your work piece much easier, and allows you to recover easier from some carving/machine mishaps.
You can also contact Charley Thomas directly for additional help:

Re: Triquetra

Bob, The Triquetra uses a standard gcode file to zero your bit to a work piece. There is no special "interface" required for using one with PicSender. I have used one since Charlie first started producing them. You can load the gcode file for your Triquetra into one of the QCodes positions...

Re: picsender work on open builds black box

Sorry, I have no experience with the OpenBuilds Blackbox controller. I do understand it uses a version of grbl 1.1, but don't know of any other users connecting it with PicSender. Perhaps you can get some help here:
