Version 1.0.2 Released

Post by Doug » Fri Apr 01, 2022 10:13 am

Version 1.0.2 of the Buildbotics Controller software has been released?
UpgradeNotice1_0_2.png
Here are the highlights.
  • G92.2 and G53 now work correctly in the simulation. This eliminates a lot of 'Under' and 'Over' confusion in the axis table. See github issue #297
  • The input, output, and analog pins on the DB25 connector are now remappable. For a better description check out the I/O Tab section in our manual.
  • The software keyboard on the local interface automatically pops up when you select a text entry field and disappears when you leave the field.
  • You can now disable the software keyboard. This removes the annoyance of the software keyboard popping up when you are using a hardware keyboard on the local monitor interface.
  • We fixed a problem where some types of spindles would not stop when the BB Controller is estopped.
  • Provide support for other types of gamepads besides the Logitech F310. Try them out if you want and let us know how well they work.
  • Added support for EM50, H100, Galt G200/D500, and Fuling DZB200/300 VFD's
  • Fixed a problem with assigning named GCode variables
  • Disabled the 3D viewer on the local head and on remote computers that do not support WebGL
  • Replaced the Indicators tab on the Control Page with the I/O tab and the Power Tab
  • Added an image of the DB15 breakout box to the I/O tab on the Control Page
Let us know what you think.

When is the next stable rev coming out, having issues with jog mode getting stuck and the only way to regain access the bb controller is to estop, or restart. Becoming an issue. Any help would be great.

Gene Brooks. Thanks

It's not scheduled. I can hook you up with our latest release of 1.0.4. It's still beta but seems to be stable.

What's new in 1.0.4?
I wouldn't mind giving it a shot.

Well, the main thing is that it resolved the "stuck in jogging" bug.

We haven't got around to releasing it yet, but it is quite stable.

Here is a link to the file" https://buildbotics.com/bbctrl/bbctrl-1 ... 12.tar.bz2
