Checksum errors and usb
Hi, recently got my BoXZY. I am a hobbyist and it looks like fun! My first goal is to do some simple routing projects.
I’ve finally got a compatible g code, one that I’ve successfully run on a small cheap CNC, and want to do the same thing with the BoXZY. Running the code seems to work, the head moves in predictable ways and the travel moves show up when trying a air run (but very slow refreshing. Definitely not live), but in a file with 23,724 lines, I had 47 checksum errors. The lines of gcode were resent automatically, and I think all the passes were eventually completed, but I want to know what’s up. I’m using the USB cable supplied, tried all three USB ports on my laptop (which is a current generation gaming laptop with plently or RAM, processing speed, USB 3.0 compatibility, etc), tried switching USB cables, all to no avail. What else can I try to avoid these errors?
Slightly separate question, can I use a universal g code sender with BoXZY? Rudimentary, but some of them have very straightforward interfaces. The gcode sender I currently use is Candle, but even though it says it is connected to BoXZY, none of the manual controls work (COM and baud rate are correct).
Is this a good question?
