Getting Help (please read first)

Post by admin » Mon Apr 09, 2012 7:24 pm

GRBL is the arduino based g-code interpreter found accompanying most Shapeoko setups. Before asking any questions please be sure to read the wiki page on the topic. There is a ton of useful information that will more than likely answer any entry level questions.

With that said, if you've read the wiki page and your question is not answered, POST IT here! There's a whole community of users willing to help.

Wiki page can be found here: http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/Grbl

Need Help!

My g-code sender is not communicating with Arduino uno when I give it commands. I followed the instruction at the wiki site and nothing happens. I have Windows 8 and Arduino its recognized/working correctly. This topic took me to the Xloader and its been uploading Grbl08 basic file for a while.

What am I missing?

THE XLoader didn't work but I found the Arduino uploader that did...or so I thought. The command promote window closes to quickly to see if its successful or not. When I go back into the g code sender, it beeps and nothing happens.

Please start a new topic. This thread is just a guide to go look at the existing help.
I would also suggest that you include me information about your setup. You really haven't given us anything to work with.
