Carbide ShapeOko 3 Driver for WindOWS xp? link

Post by kristenanne77 » Thu Jun 18, 2015 12:22 pm

I contacted carbide and received link for drivers (new "V2" and older "V1")
http://docs.carbide3d.com/article/14-wi ... oko-driver

I tried the older ("V1") driver since I am running windOWs xp.
It installed but Universal GCode sender still does not recognize the usb port.

I contacted carbide this morning and hope this will get further investigation.
Will keep you posted.
If anyone with Xp has any solution with driver please post.

Thanks
K

Right, that download page has been linked to from the wiki for a while now: http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/ ... l_Software As noted on the page, the v1 app is for the Nomad883 (I edited your post title to reflect that).

There was a note on the bCNC github page I think it was that one could possibly alter the Arduino drivers to recognize the Carbide Motion microcontroller, so technically this should work on Windows XP, we just need to work out installing the driver.

Hopefully Carbide3D will come through w/ a real link to a stand-alone driver installer. If not, you could use a small Linux distribution booted up from a flash drive, or we'll work up some other solution.

Will, Thanks for the insight.. I hate to put a good old garage computer out to pasture,
....will have to wait until I hear from the carbide people.

(I am very tempted to get a cheap windoz 7 computer, but .... money is money, and I hate getting rid of something that is not broken. :oops: )


Thanks

I am still mourning (and trying to adapt to) replacing my perfectly functional Fujitsu Stylistic ST4121 w/ a Toshiba Encore 2 Write 10, and am really regretting the purchase.

Hang on, we’ll work something out.

I also downloaded the carbide (older) version of the mac driver for the "other half" of my MacBook (which runs the older operating system called snow leopard).
Didn't seem to work but there appear to be a few choices for ports and baud rate. I haven't tried them all yet. The few I tried were no good and I am not optimistic.
If anyone has any luck with an older mac using the carbide driver, please chime in.

I do however prefer a workable xp solution since all my cad-cam stuff works works with xp.

Thanks

:D :D :D :D SUCCESS! :D :D :D :D I uninstalled the "old V1 carbide driver", and installed the "new V2" carbide driver per Carbides instructions..
Although I cannot run the Carbide communication software with Windoz xp, the driver for ShapeOko WAS installed allowing me to run Universal GCodeSender.I tried a test air mill and iIT WORKED. (I used the same post processor I had used with my ShapeOko 2)
PLEASE NOTE: The first time I opened GCodeSender I received an error about not seeing port.
I then tried switching baud rate and com port and "the port magically opened". I then switched the baud rate back to 115,200 and port remained opened.
I closed program and opened program a few times without any further problems. I have not yet tried shutting down computer and restarting again to see if it will still work - but believe me, if it doesn't work you will hear from me real soon!

Below is the email response from Carbide. Underneath that was my preliminary $$ text code which is embedded in their board.
If anyone sees something in the text that looks incorrect, let me know.
I will have to take some actual measurements to make sure the x, y and z parameters are correctly calibrated.
Hope it helps some people. :D :D :D :D :D

**************************************************************
EMAIL INSTRUCTIONS FROM CARBIDE:
<<<You should be able to install the Carbide Motion program to get the driver installed. Carbide Motion will not run on XP, but the installer will and that's where the driver lives. You will need V2 though since that one added support for Shapeoko.

Let me know if I can answer anything else for you.

The older Mac should've ``just worked'' with a new copy of Universal G-code Sender --- no driver from Carbide needed.
