GrblGru: Gcode-sender for TinyG

Post by GrblGru » Tue Mar 24, 2015 5:42 pm

As new proud owner of an TinyG, I'm pleased to announce that GrblGru now is also able to control the TinyG. That means that you can use this program for transmitting your NC-program to TinyG as CoolTerm does. But also it shows the toolpath and the 3D movement of your machine.

I have tried to describe details in the section 'Connection Grbl / TinyG' of the manual:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/278a8a5uu92hg ... l.pdf?dl=0

I have tested it with many files, but there are a lot of 'little nasties', which could lead to an error. If some Gcode doesn't work, please give me the chance to improve the program, and send me the NC-file.

I installed the program for my tinyg and it will not see the port. I can connect to the port with tmfg, cool term and chili pepper, but not Grblguru. I tried several times and it won't connect. The program looks promising, but it has to connect to tinyg for me to use it.

Thank you

I have tried all as suggested and it still won't connect. There must be something I am over looking. It will connect to TGFX and chili pepper but not Grblguru.

It does look at com 3. I think it is in the configuration. I will take another look at it and let you know. Thank you for helping me to solve this so I can get my head out of the dang cloud. I will definitely do my best to pass this on if this can replace chili peppr!!!

Well. I have successfully connected to tinyg to no avail. When I load the saved gcodes from vcarve, I get nothing but syntax error and can't go any further. Loads fine in all the other programs. What next to try

I cannot send the file because it won't let me attach it. When I loaded the file in GrblGru it said syntax error and wouldn't let me go any futher. After I run around to get internet connection and connect to the cloud and ran back to the shop I loaded the same file in chili peppr and it worked fine.

Please let me know how I can get this file to you.



Thank you for your time. I am tired of running for the cloud!
