Re: How to run ChiliPepr w/o internet (was Re: Software)

Internet outage here happens about once a month in summer due to storms. Sometimes for a couple of days. Otherwise have fast DSL except at shop, where I don't have Internet service due to location as I have stated in earlier post. Last time electricity went out here was about 6 years ago in ice stor...

Re: How to run ChiliPepr w/o internet (was Re: Software)

Last Thursday a storm came through our area and knocked out the Internet. I needed to carve on my cnc machine and if i was only relying on the Internet to get to the g code sender program I would have been in trouble. That is what I was talking about! I would hate to have a machine and rely on the c...

Re: How to run ChiliPepr w/o internet (was Re: Software)

I just want everyone to know that if you want to run a g code sender on tinyg without being hooked to the internet, GRBLGRU is the program! It works great!! Has no slow down with memory problems, has a good interface and plenty of options. It also has a manual that he has written, that is extensive ...

Re: 400 watt brushless spindle and controller

I bought from amazon. I got the 400 watt spindle and speed controller with mounting bracket as one. It works great! I also bought a 10 amp 48 volt power supply to power it. I never thought 2 of those brushless spindles and controllers would be bad, but I am beginning to think they messed up somewher...

Re: 400 watt brushless spindle and controller

I finally gave up on this spindle and driver. I tried two of them and returned them! I tried every solution possible. They have either got something wrong with the electronics, or the schematic is wrong. No one with this blue colored controller that I know of has had it work! Finally went with 400 w...

Re: GrblGru: Gcode-sender for TinyG

Okay GrblGru. But I have become kind of attached to Guru! Thank you for working on a Imperial version. This works great and I am very happy! It does not slow down like TGFX, it just sails through the project and works! No cloud needed! This program should be listed on the wiki also! Can I at least b...

Re: GrblGru: Gcode-sender for TinyG

I went ahead and used GRBLGURU last night and it worked FLAWLESSLY. Thank you and I will push this program. The only other thing that I did not get was the 3d colored picture of the preview on the screen. I downloaded the manual, which by the way is pretty thorough by glancing at it, and haven't had...

Re: How to run ChiliPepr w/o internet (was Re: Software)

I have stated my reasons why chili peppr won't work for me. Plain and simple, there is a lot of us that don't have internet access. Period. I did not mean to slander John for developing chili peppr. In fact it is a great program. I have absolutely no complaints other than I can't use it because of m...

Re: GrblGru: Gcode-sender for TinyG

Imperial works great for me. I have a hard time with metric. Everything in my shop is imperial.
