I am having some trouble when using the Axidraw merge when multiple units are hooked up to my computer. Each Axidraw is named and with the Axidraw Control, I am able to plot to all or specific units. I am wanting to know if it is possible to use the Merge with multiple units. I see on the “Setup” tab of Merge, it only specifies which type of Axidraw model to use, and does not give an option to use a named unit or to plot to all units.
I am currently working with software 2.6.3 and my firmware is 2.6.0 on all units. I have had some issues when updating to the most recent firmware and am not sure if this would be contributing to the merging issue above.
No, AxiDraw Merge does not yet have support for plotting to multiple machines.
It is something that we are working on for a future version, but it is quite a different situation to plot several different documents at the same time (rather than one document several times). We are still trying to determine a good user interface mode for doing so.
