Hey....what's up with that new menu tab ?
Is something happening on September 4th ?.....what are we going to do until Tuesday ?
@Mark Carew : on the cam setup it shows the 'end gcode' as below
but that is incorrect
it should be
G0 X0 Y0 ; the Y is missing from your code
I cannot type a Y there to fix it. many other letters can be typed, but not Y
@Mark Carew, @David the swarfer, I'm hoping the Linux driver download works some time today....I mean "Y" not? All will be revealed today, right?
Thanks for the Bug report - will fix today
[EDIT: Fix committed in Fix Keydown Binding typo as reported by @swarfer - that was preventin… · OpenBuilds/cam@1e37e8e]
Checking from my side, the Linux DL works (and installs fine on my Ubuntu box) - can you elaborate on any issues? (Ctrl+shift+i -> devtools console always gives some clues) or use the alternate download at OpenBuilds/SW-Machine-Drivers (download.openbuilds.com just tries to present it a little prettier - but Github releases is the backend)
@Peter Van Der Walt, all the green buttons show just a placeholder link: [ Download OpenBuilds Software]
Google Chrome: Version 68.0.3440.106 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Acer i7 laptop
I'll try that alternate download link later, thanx!
The buttons has a JS onclick event (So the Placeholder is valid HTML) - that executes an ajax getJSON to Github Releases to grab you the Latest exe/dmg/deb/appimage etc as appropriate - using ajax instead of hardcoded links means I dont need to keep updating the link and spend more time making cool features (As each Github Release has the Tag in the URL)
(Checkout OpenBuilds/download if you want to know what it does under the bonnet)
That said - I think I see bug (; Gimme 10 and i'll fix it for you!
[edit: fixed ]
Well...... That went straight over my head.
@GrayUK , back when I was still doing some web development, we were just beginning to use some ajax routines to make life simpler. Now when I think about digging into anything web development-like, my eyes roll back in my head and i start to drool
@Peter Van Der Walt , still not working for me, but the problem is probably on my end:
been having some Java issues since upgrading to 18.04. I got the linux driver at github, installed the deb and the browser based CAM finds the driver. The App itself doesn't open. I get the above error instead. I guess I'll fiddle with it all later! Thanks!
Always a chance its our side - especially the Linux side (not so many users - so gets a bit less testing) - so don't rule that out yet
I picked up you knew a little though when I saw you checking the placeholder/href )
Quick question: Is this the DEB or the AppImage one?
(I'll download 18.04 tonight - been putting off updating) and see if I can replicate - the AppImage shouldnt be running in /opt - and maybe just maybe the .deb installer is doing something odd)
If you are on the .deb, try the AppImage too - it's kinda cool AppImage
so now everything is magically working, download buttons and the app. Downloaded the deb a second time, installed it and it works (there was some kind of error screen, but it continued on to load and run) Jogging my test setup now!
Sweet! I fixed the download button bug (stupid mistake, had a little code in there (windows only) from before we added the mac/linux versions hehe) so I'll say that less likely magic (;
But the other one, I didnt do a fix.
However the error was because it was started with a parameter, which wasnt a file.
(You can run './openbuildsmachinedriver file.gcode' and it'll open the file. The error looked like it was getting a parameter, but said parameter wasnt a file. Maybe ubuntu was adding something onto the end of the command for some odd reason. Still, it needs some extra coding to handle that without throwing an error - the 1.8gb Ubunntu 18.04 ISO is in my download queue - will see if I can replicate and then fix
mmm, (maybe it's my old sys. win7 / google chrome)
put a circle in > move it...& get Pinokkio on your screen
works fine with imported .svg files > export to mach4
Nope, known bug - but super rare this would be the third instance I know of, in 7 months)
move (it messes up the first point)
Now move again, and it works. (Well for the two other times I've found this)
Do drop me the test file, from the other two I couldnt find why those drawings had issues with their first vertex jumping differently (With only two files, its hard to pickup a pattern to debug - so one more may just help) - also include which CAD it came from
I actually want to rewrite DragMove entirely (Todo: DragMove: Enhance to support selected objects as well · Issue #2 · OpenBuilds/cam ) to also make it more useful, that might just incidentally solve it - but would be better to find what the issue is, and properly fix it.
lol: now i have pacman on my screen.
This happens only when use the build in circle tool, not with a imported svg.
Aha! Will check it out!
Fixed: See Fix circlegeometry Move bug reported by HC Carbo · OpenBuilds/cam@a8bce0f
jep, no more pinokkio....but packman still there (circle > ctrl z > move)
Yeah I only addressed the Move - the undo is a different little can of worms - it's on the todo!
Was fixed today - you can test again please and let me know if you find any new issues
jep, seems ok now (y)
