Re: DynaMyte 2400 retrofit HowTo Video

You probably need to upgrade the software.

Re: DynaMyte 2400 retrofit HowTo Video

Yes, we weren't bringing out the monitor port to the back of the controller for the first few months. The port is available on the Raspberry PI and if you managed to get a hole through the back of the controller, you could plug directly into the RPI. I haven't heard much from you. How is your system...

Re: inch's

It sounds like the machine is trying to home to limit switches and is not finding the switch.

I think I can provide better assistance to you via the phone. Please give me a cal at 707-559-8539.

Re: Not sure where to start NEWBIE HERE. HELP

The units are probably displaying in millimeters. Select Imperial from the pull-down menu on the Control Page.

Also, it sounds like you can use some help in general. I left a message on your telephone answering machine. Give me a call at 707-559-8539. I'm sure I can help you get going.

Re: inch's

It's displaying in millimeters. You can change the display to Imperial units (inches) by selecting Imperial from a pull-down menu on the Control page, or by issuing a G20 command from the MDI interface on the Control Page, or by putting a G20 in one of your GCode programs and running it.

Re: How does probing work?

If the probe is not contacted before it has reached the maximum probing distance in the G38.2 Z-XX command, then the controller will go into estop. Keep in mind that the G91 command puts the controller into incremental mode, so the Z movement is the distance that it will move down from the current p...

Re: Wanted to know

I took a quick look at it. There doesn't seem to be any documentation on the interfaces. I'll assume that the motors are bipolar steppers and that they will work fine. The spindle control is through a pwm interface. There is no indication of the voltage amplitude that is required for the pwm signal....

Re: PWM Spindle stops sending signal after homing device.

I just tested the PWM output on my machine. I am running 0.4.14 software. It seems to work fine both before and after homing. Here are a few things to consider: 1. Many lasers will not work with the 3.3V PWM output. They require a 5Volt PWM signal to work correctly. I even found that the new version...

Re: Entering a G-Code program

Yes, Our plan is to include this capability on an upcoming release. My partner has already demonstrated this capability to me. I do not have a schedule for the release but will announce it on this forum when we do.
