Unparking (retrieve homing & position info at startup)

This macro allows you to retrieve the homing and position info that was used during shutdown without having to read GCode system variables. Simply put, this code sends the machine to a specified location, mine is front center with the Z at full height, so it is ready for a tool change, and then sets...

Parking (save homing & position info at shutdown)

This macro allows you to save the current homing and position info during shutdown without having to set GCode system variables. Simply put, this code sends the machine to a specified location, mine is back center with the Z at full height, so it is out of the way. The parked location is very machin...

Create a Desktop Shortcut to the Controller

Tired of typing in the ip address of the controller each time you need to remote in to it? Here is a desktop shortcut you can use! BuildBotics Controller.zip I had to compress the file so the file extension wouldn't trigger an error. All you have to do is download the folder, unzip it, save the shor...

Re: After Upgrading, all files have X and Y axis "under" on axis table.

Just an update. Doug emailed me back and said this is a known issue and they are working on a fix, hopefully later this week. In the meantime, just revert back to a backup of the configuration prior to upgrading. Here is the latest release candidate for you to download and revert too, if you lost a ...

Network File Access

Hello all! I wanted to share how I linked my file server (NAS) to the BuildBotics controller. First off, I know there are two ways in-built to the controller to manage file transfers. The first is by using a USB thumb drive, and the second is by using another computer to remote into the controller's...

After Upgrading, All Files Have X and Y "Under" on Axis Table.

Since upgrading, all files, new and old, all show an "under" warning in the axis table after loading. The soft limits have not changed, and my files are all set as a lower left origin, so it is weird that both axis are under. And to top it all off, i somehow deleted the configuration backup yesterda...

Re: Any Update on GitHub issue #297?

Hello. I just ran into this issue also when doing some modifications to the vectric post processor by adding G53 G0 X24 Y18 Z7 to run at the end of each job. I don't really use the 3D viewer, but this throws a "No Fit" error on the coordinate control page as the "Fit" checks are based on the zero of...

Re: Vectric Post Processor

Hello all! So I made a few small changes to the Vectric post processor to fit my needs. To those of you who don't understand what the post processor does, it just formats the output of the toolpaths from Vectric into GCode that is readable by the BuildBotics controller. The changes I made are below:...
