Whats the difference between L2 and L20? and just to confirm... does it matter If I enter the G10L2P1X0Y0Z0 right after i power up the machine or not?cvoinescu wrote:There's not much in EEPROM, so it's easy to clear:
- WCS: clear with G10 L2 P1 X0 Y0 Z0, then repeat with P2, ..., P6. Note that's L2, not L20.
- Startup lines: clear with $N0= and $N1= (nothing after the equal sign).
- Settings: just enter new settings instead (e.g. $1=255).
Shouldnt I need to do a G92.1 before to clear all active offsets?
Sorry for all the questions but I seem to have problems wrapping my mind around it
So its basically the same as flashing GRBL to an uno? don't know what I did wrong then, I must have been sleepy or something.FargoPhil wrote:cvoinescu is right, that would be like swatting a fly with a bazooka. But to answer your question, yes. I was able to pull the source from github, compile, and upload to the carbide motion board. The procedure is well documented on the grbl github site.rodcar125 wrote:Any luck reflashing the carbide motion board?
I would like to do some mods too specially, clearing all the eeprom memory since i think i screwed up the WCS and want to have a clean start
There were two issues I ran into.
1. I didn't know what kind of ardino the carbide motion board is equivalent to. Answer: Uno.
2. The procedure involves importing the grbl source as a zip library. There's an example sketch that you then load which wires everything up. What I didn't realize initially is that the source is copied to a directory owned by the ide. The changes I made weren't being realized by the compiler since it wasn't looking where I thought. My solution was to reimport for every build. Super annoying but not a big deal when you know what's going on. If I were serious about grbl development I'd figure out how to do it right.
Ill try it again tonight.
And you are right about being an overkill if all you wanted to do is clear some offsets but I want to update to GRBL i and set some other complie options.
I think ill have to figure out the pin changes right?
