    I’ve got a new Makelangelo 5. First test I did was a circle generated as an svg file from a drawing program. Importing in to the Makelangelo software displayed it as a perfect circle on screen. Printing (on US Letter paper) gave me an ellipse with width > height.

    Also, I’ve seen a few posts here from people having trouble establishing a connection to their machine. You can add me to those people. I’m on the current version of Mac OS (Catalina), and when I hit “connect” form the software I get no options. I’ve had to do my initial test prints from an SD card.




    Sorry for the mistake not getting back to you. I am spread a little thing these days.

    …does your makelangelo connect to windows computers? I used to run it from my macbook and it always seemed fine. I seem to remember macs would block connections from serial in their security settings.

    Does this help?

    In order to better diagnose what’s going on with yoru robot i’m going to write some code into makelangelo-software that dumps all the robot settings to a file. Then that report can be used to solve your oval with less back-and-forth. Project for the day!
