Yes i just checked it and it is the original and there is not any kind of voltage adapter
Yes I tried them in the right position. I also checked a picture of the EBB with the pin names just to be super sure. I also checked the correct position of the colors
Brown = Ground
Red = 5V
Orange = PWM Signal
I just updated the Mac version and changed the servo_pin to 2. Again I tried with the 3 servo motors and no movement at all.
In the linux version i have 3.6.0
In Mac i have 2.7.0
I checked all the pins with a loupe and the bottoms ones where a little bit bend, still they seem to be in position without any kind of movement or broken.The rest seems to be fine. I changed the file “axidraw_conf.py” in linux as you mentioned. And i tried the cycle mode with out success in all the servo motors. Nothing moves. I reseted the computer and nothing changed. Then i try to modify the file “axidraw_conf.py” in Mac but oddly i couldn’t find that option in the file they seemed to be quite different.
Yes XY works without problems
In osx I replaced the wcb.py installed by the installer (https://github.com/evil-mad/wcb-ink/releases/latest) with the one i downloaded from the github V1 branch in the extension folder (Modified version for printing on AxiDraw) It was the same one that i installed in linux. And wcb.py is located here:/Applications/Inkscape.app/Contents/Resources/share/inkscape/extensions
In osx I also installed them in the user extension folder but it is exactly the same.
Thanks a lot for the new template i still could not open it from linux who knows why but i opened it in osx and there was not a problem. I made a new file with the same size as the template (990x720px scale 1) in Linux and the size of the 10cm cube was very close I got 10.6 cm. Is this small discrepancy because i am missing something from the original template or does it have to do that i have an AxiDraw V3/A3?
I have just changed the scale of the template in Inkscape to 1,05000 and is perfect i am getting the 10cms now
By the way every time i tried to open the watercolorbot template Inkscape crashes.
Yes, axidraw extension is working without a problem but the watercolor bot is giving me the serialposix problem in osx.
I tried in Linux and i got a message in the same 37 line but in this case the message was that no module called “serial” was found. As that happened to me before in linux with another module i installed python3-serial and that worked. Now i am researching how to install the serialposix module in osx.
I printed a page in linux and i don’t have the 45 degree problem anymore now my problem is the scale. I changed the DPI number in wcb_conf.py from 2032 to 2874 and i got a bigger drawing but still is too small and also the area of the water and paint got bigger. That is why i think changing the DPI is not the correct approach. Do you know a better way to control the scale of the drawing?
I uninstalled inkscape and all the extensions and i started fresh again. I was using the Standard installation for mac as stated in the webpage but after your post i installed it manually and i advanced a little bit now it seem i am missing something called serialposix
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “wcb.py”, line 37, in <module>
File “/Applications/Inkscape.app/Contents/Resources/share/inkscape/extensions/serial/__init__.py”, line 21, in <module>
from serialposix import *
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named ‘serialposix’
Should i install also the axidraw extension?
I tried the axidraw branch version but unfortunately i am getting the following message
File “wcb.py”, line 395
self.resumeMode = False
TabError: inconsistent use of tabs and spaces in indentation
Do you know how can I modify the file to fix it? thanks a lot
Thanks for the super fast answer Windell! I will try it right now.
I will also love to paint with one ink like Toni. I have an AxiDraw V3/A3 and i tried to use de recommendations but unfortunately it did not work for me. In wcb_conf.py I changed the N_PAGE_WIDTH to 8In and the F_DPI_16X to 2874 steps. Then i changed the wcb.py from SM to XM. The scale seems to be correct but the drawing seems to be rotated 45°. With the Control watercolor i can move manually in the x and y axis without a problem.
I am using the Control WatercolorBot inkscape extension Release 1.6.0
Thanks in advance!
Eureka! It is fixed.
I researched what is lxml and I found out that it is a phython lybrary. I checked in my system and I realized that I did not have it installed. After installing the package phyton3-lxml V 4.2.1-1ubuntu0.1 everything is working correctly. I researched and it seams that it is automatically installed by Inkscape at least in Windows that is why i don’t understand why it was not installed automatically in Linux Mint or why I did not have it installed before in my system. I hope this will help other people having the same problem, as I was.
By the way the extension Gear is also working now.
Thanks a lot Windell!!
