I’ll try to test on my laptop in the coming days to see if I can get RoboPaint to work on it. I would also like to try on a Raspberry Pi, but the steps seem a little daunting at the moment.
Inkscape worked first time :)
I installed the 1.1 extension, selected the WaterColorBot extension, put on a swirl on the black layer, selected apply, and it painted a swirl (OK, I didn’t have a brush in yet :) ).
Even when I remove COM7, RoboPaint still claims it “Connected Successfully” (but EbiBotBoard not found). I disconnected my USB hub, and my keyboard, and the same thing. It looks to me like it is connecting to something else besides COM7… since it produces the same result with no COM7 there at all.
I was able to connect to COM7 with Putty (a serial monitor utility at 9600 baud). I was able to perform the R command and get “OK”, I also ran SM,100,100,100 which appeared to move the steppers properly. And for the V command, I got “EBBv13_and_above EB Firmware Version 2.0.1″
I don’t know if that helps. No luck getting any of the apps to connect yet… still trying.
I see COM6 and COM7 appear when I plug the USB cable in, they appear in the Windows 10 USB devices list. I see COM6 from my USB hub, COM7 from the USB on the back of the computer. I can hit “remove device” and then they go away, and they seem to properly reinstall if I remove and re-insert the USB cable from the WCB. So yes, it appears the WCB is doing enough to set up the serial interface. I will try RoboPaint RT start right after reboot
I have no luck connecting RoboPaint v2 beta 3 with Windows 10. When I plug in the WaterColorBot, I do get a COM port eventually appear. And when I run RoboPaint, I do get a brief flyout on the botton-right that declares “Status: Connected Successful 0/1” which then disappears, but the main dialog has the banner with “Couldn’t Connect EiBotBoard not found”. No luck with RoboPaint RT either. I have tried different USB inputs and gotten COM6, then COM7, still no connection. I’ve tried various re-installations, reboots, re-install, etc. No go. Any ideas?
