    Hello all

    I am looking for some help with my setup. As follows:
    Arduino Uno with AMS2 ; AMSFirmware etc.

    The firmware and the software seems to be OK , but there is no interaction between GUI and Plotter. Although logs are looking quite well. On the same hardware i can start and work with a Polargraph type plotter.

    Makelangelo Software does a number of checks to make sure the machine it is talking to is, in fact, a makelangelo robot that it knows how to converse with. It asks for the hadware type (polargraph) the hardware version (in this case, 2) and the firmware version (10). If any one of these returns the wrong answer it thinks “nope, I’m not even going to try talking to you” and the buttons to draw will remain disabled.

    I don’t have an AMS2 on my desk to test with so I can’t confirm which of these is failing.

    Hello Dan

    Thx for your reply.
    So – do i understand right, that a “polargraph”-type equals to hardware-version 2, and
    not “…custom…” ?

    And second: Do yoou say that my plotter might work with a firmware-version 10 ? Where can i find this ? Right now i use 7.24.2, which i thought is “correct” for AMS2 boards.

    Looking forward to your answers.

    I just updated github with a possible fix. Please try it out and report back. Thank you!

    Hello Dan

    I did a quick test usig the fix you provided. I saw some improvements but no plot action possible until now. Here are – in short form – the things i can see. I would like to test further on if possible.

    1.) Can not change the language. Tried it , restarted the GUI ; same language.

    2.) The button “Connect” is and was working, but now it connects to the actual machine ID. So there is some response.

    3.) Jog Buttons are not working. No movement.

    4.) File Dialog ( open / select) a file is OK. File is loaded into plotter canvas.

    5.) In use is 7.24.2

    6.) The buttons on the ART panel are labeled like e.g.
    “Missing:Resize” ; “Missing:Flip” and so the other three.

    7.) After pressing “Start” on the panel “Animation”, i got a process indicator showing 1/5 20.00 %

    Thx in advance – hartmut

    Hello Dan

    Besides my last post from yesterday, i can tell you that the machine is working to a certain degree. I am still trying to get it work, but there is one major issue:
    The plots are very small. An A3 plot comes in the size of a stamp.
    I guess it has something to do with the nonwritable fields in the configpanel.
    Because of that, i can’t complete the setup correctly.
    See attached png.

    Can't change the defaults

    Thank you
