My first try was a freeze but i want to double check everything to be sure. (off to work now)Thank you for the sofetware revisions.On a seperate note: I am think of a new build using a Smoothie Board and the steppermotors I have on the Ostrich Egg Bot. I dont see any info printed on the motors. What are the model number/brand please, so I can find the power requirements for them. Thanks.
I downloaded the 2.6.4. Tried to Check the EBB version using the manual command.> Frozen. I tested the USB plug with an external hard drive and it does show up.
unplugged the board > tried to run the egg motor a few steps. Instead of “inkscape can’t find the eggbot on any port” I get the crash instead.
Thanks for your help and quick response1-I tried extentions> render> gear> gear >Aply button with Live preveiw box checked. I DO have the image of a gear/cog on the screen2-unplugging effects no change. all buttons do not respond. I must quit and reopen inkscapeFYI since my last post I trashed and then reinstalled inkscape (0.91) and eggbot extensions (2.6.3). so the serial folder has not been touched/moved/replaced with 2.5.0 version
I dowloaded the newest eggbot extensions (2.6.3). Came back with an error window that was exactly like the one in this thread:Mac OSX 10.11.1 eggbot extension 2.6.3 problems with Inkscape 0.91 – Evil Mad Scientist ForumsI followed the recommendations and replaced the serial folder with the serial folder from eggbot ext. 2.5.0.Now I have a frozen insacpe again. :(thanks
Mac OS 10.11.1
Eggbot extensions 2.5.0
EBB firmware unknown (Ostrich-egg model purchased in 2013, red colored board)
Freezing or crashing, I am not sure the difference. When I go to Extentions/Eggbot/Eggbot control/ then the setup tab, adjusting the pen arm then click apply button ( i have tried other actions such as “walk motor 2’) . I get a pop up window: “eggbot control working please wait…” this window never closes and I get the windows equivalent to the spinning rainbow wheel (spinning clock face). I am still able to move the curser around and click out of Inscape, but inscape will not do anything else. Cancel button does not work. Red button to close window not working either.
If I try this with the EBB not plugged in I get this: “Unable to find an Eggbot on any serial port. :( “.
I have tried with a new USB cable
Quartz is working during the inscape freeze
I have not been able to find Eggbot extensions 2.6.3
Unplugged cable during freeze, no change, spinning clock face
thanksHi Windell,Thanks for your response.I have the engraver attachment too. I would like to try it. I have no experience in programming or reading code. Sorry for the stupid question but…
“Open up the Eggbot software (eggbot.py) within the Inkscape Extensions folder, and look through the code.”=================I don’t know where to go to find this folder. I have been searching my computer.=================
Where to find the extensions on your system
Eggbot’s extensions to Inkscape are text files. There are two text files per extension: a Python program with file extension .py and a menu description with file extension .inx. The syntax of the latter file is that of XML while its semantics are specific to Inkscape . These files are located in different directories on different platforms:
=================I know I have the eggbot extensions installed because I can use them in Inkscape (“Eggbot control” is there and the other extensions too). I updated everything: Xquartz 2.7.4, Inkscape 0.48.2, Eggbot Ext. 2.3.1. Where do I search to find these text files?I am a Mac user.I’m sure it’s somthing obvious.Thanks againOctober 3, 2013 at 2:20 am in reply to: Nothing happens when trying to calibrate pen up/ pen down #21329
