    Hello guys,

    we have purchased two eggbot pcb kits.
    Unfortunately we are too stupid to make it work.
    We are stumbeling already on the inkscape layer.

    Thats the errormessage we got:

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File “eggbot.py”, line 41, in <module>
    plot_utils = from_dependency_import(‘plotink.plot_utils’) # Requires v 0.15 in plotink
    File “plot_utils_import.py”, line 36, in from_dependency_import
    module = import_module(module_name)
    File “C:\Program Files\Inkscape\lib\python2.7/importlib/__init__.py”, line 37, in import_module
    __import__(name)
    File “C:\Users\unath\AppData\Roaming\inkscape\extensions\axidraw_deps/plotink/plot_utils.py”, line 40, in <module>
    from math import sqrt, isclose
    ImportError: cannot import name isclose

    Is that enough or do we need to provide more info to get to the next step.

    Cheers
    Uwe

    Which version of Inkscape did you install?

    Inkscape 0.92, installed on Windows 10 Pro.

    You’ve installed a set of Inkscape extensions that require Inkscape 1.0; it will not work on Inkscape 0.92.

    OK,

    have installed 1.02 of inkscape.
    PC seems working.

    But I get an errormessage, saying:

    Failed to connect to EggBot. :(

    On the Arduino IDE I get the connect to the board.
    Maybe I need to load the eggbot sketch onto the board?
    But I cannot find an INO file to load.

    Cheers

    Why are you using the Arduino IDE? Is this not an EggBot?

    Sorry to be not precise.

    After installing the newest incscape version, it ssems that the usb connection to the eggbot boat is not working.

    I gett in inkscape the errormessage:

    Failed to connect to EggBot. :(

    My next step is to start the adruino ide, where I can connect to the board, as an Arudino ZERO – Native USB Port.

    My assumption is now that the PC software is working.
    I can see that the USB connection is working, because I get the Serial Nuimber of the board back at a connection test.

    Next thing in line is the board itself.
    As power is connected properly, I assume that the program on the board is missing.

    Can you please clarify what it is you are doing with the Arduino IDE?

    Yes – Just checking if the USB connection to the board is working

    What does the board say on it?

    BN: Arduino Zero (Native USB Port)
    VID: 2341
    PID: 804d

    OK, so that’s definitely not an EggBot control board. The EggBot software does not support it.

    Thanx for your effort.
    I lately found out that I am a stupid person who posted the question on the wrong forum.

    Well,

    it turns out that this is the correct forum.
    So I have an Eggbot Board from JJROBOTS VBersion 1
    There is nothing installed so far.
    If I plug in the USB port. the blue LED on the ESP is flashing one time.
    I have found out that there is that EBBUpgraderGUI_v270 Software.
    I cannot connect to the board.
    Errormessage is saying:

    Building a list of COM ports …
    Found the following ports:

    COM5
    Testing port … no EBB found
    Testing port COM5 … no EBB found
    Click Exit (or click Start Upgrade again to update more EBBs)

    There is no other program running which is occupying the USB port.
    Do I need to equip the board with the driver Hardware first?

    We do not provide support for that hardware.

    If this is a JJROBOTS product, then you need to ask _them_ for support, not us.
