    hello
    i have an ISSUES with my makelangelo machine ill point them below
    1) severe line in accuracy when drawing (drew the fabriconi (already a gcode from the makelangelo file) all the lines intersect each other)
    2) doesn’t support jave on windows 7 (currently using MAC although im not experienced)
    3) error when uploading an image to the program it cannot convert it to gcode ( i cant find an alternative image to gcode program)
    4) although i have the limits configured right the pen still goes off the limits
    😳 πŸ˜•

    It sounds like there are several challenges all overlapping.

    I see many round corners that should be square. I suspect that the machine is drawing too fast or the pen holder is not staying on the paper.

    When the program converts a picture it makes the picture fit inside the limits. If you are using an older image (like the fibbonacci spiral) it already has some limits “baked in”. If those limits don’t match your machine then the pen holder will go off the limits. The program also bakes in the speed.

    So the first thing to fix is the Windows 7 and get an image to upload correctly, which might fix the other issues. The Java program wants to write a temporary file to store the gcode. It sounds like the program does not have write permission on your computer, so it can’t create the gcode file, so it fails to convert. What is the Java error you are getting?

    In the windows version of the software there is a start32.bat and a start64.bat. One or the other should launch the program. Please let me know if it doesn’t work and give a detailed report of what goes wrong so I can help you quickly.

    Here are pictures of my setup for the M2.

    In this machine the paper is 605mm wide and 480mm tall. The board is 1065mm wide and 660mm tall. I believe the margin on the drawing of Audrey Hepburn was set to 15%.

    As you can see there is some inaccuracy even in the best machines with string and bobbin. That is why the M3 uses belts and pulleys.
