  • How to Make Arduino Based Mini CNC Plotter Using DVD Drive

    Hi everybody.. Thanks for this amazing project.I've been playing arround with AquaManiac version of both Arduino code and OSX app (thanks dude. wonderful job). Now I have this weird problem which is that when it is printing, suddently it stopswith the a very hight pitch moise coming from the stepper motor. Been touching delay paramenters, but cant find the reason.. Using AquaManiac (thanks again :)) app, when this happens, the box with the port connection resets (gets blank).Using proccesing code, also happens.. Any ideas what could be happenig?Thanks

    Need some help. I can print perfectly well the "cat.gcode". Thanks for that.Now. When using Inkscape (and gcode extension) it generates gcodes with negative values. (Example at the bottom.(As a result all the segments, with negative values, are printed in a line (printer thinks is out of limits)Viewing the code on "cat.gcode", I see that all values are positive.And if I load cat.gcode with CAMotics the pen is left/down, buy with the files I create is middle(x),down.Anyone can help?thanks(Scribbled version of /var/folders/gr/2tqlbkcd6fbbdtk38qsbp7gc0000gn/T/ink_ext_XXXXXX.svgHKWBSY @ 3500.00)( unicorn.py --tab="pen_reg" --pen-up-angle=50 --pen-down-angle=30 --start-delay=150 --stop-delay=150 --xy-feedrate=3500 --z-feedrate=150 --z-height=0 --finished-height=...see more »Need some help.

    Hi... It worked.. It was the first lines of the cat.gcode that freezes Gctr.M300 S30 (pen down)G4 P160 (wait 160ms)M300 S50 (pen up)G4 P150 (wait 150ms)M18 (disengage drives)M01 (Was registration test successful?)M17 (engage drives if YES, and continue)Still one problem.. Inkscape (windows) crashes when I try to save the drawing as gcode. Any ideas?Thanks

    Forgot to tell problem 2 :)b) inkscape does not work for me (Yosemite) Any other way to create gcode files?thanks

    Great project. ThanksGot 2 problemsa) Gctrl does not move the steppers (dvds). It works great with stepperTest on Arduino IDE, but with Gctrl no. I configue the port, then load a gcode file (g option) servo moves down, but steppers dont. Even if I just want to move the axis with the cursor keys, it moves one bit and starts to do a high pitch sound and dont move anymore.Any help, please
