Simplecode ARC and SFTP

Added by arjan over 4 years ago

Hello,

I want to start working with simplecode. Is is right that is does not support arc moves? So every arc is an interpolation? Or do I miss something? Would be easier voor CAM software if arc-output is possible.

Second question: How should I send data via SFTP to the machine under windows? Tried Tftpd64 with textfile with simplecode, but I don't see it appearing in que on lasercutter.

Hi Arjan,

Arc moves are not implemented yet. AFAIK, you're the first person asking for it, but if there's demand for it, we should implement it.

For sending files, the firmware only supports TFTP (Trival FTP), so not SFTP. The TFTP protocol is very (uh) trivial, so if you cannot find a client that implements it, you can also consider implementing it directly.

Im sorry, I meant TFTP. These are the settings I use. Could you give me more directions? In visicut everything is ok, but I dont think I can send textfiles with visicut, do I?

If 192.168.1.9 is your laser, this should work. You should also be able to ping that IP. I think you have to tell TFTP to send binary files (I don't see that option here). Try sending a file explicitly as binary or ascii.

Hi Arjan,

You do know about Visicut right?

Yes I do. I succeeded in running the machine from Visicut, but I want to use my CAM software to user things like radiuscompensation. For as far as I know, there is no way to manually send simplecode via Visicut.

Hi,
I would also be interested in arc moves. I think that GRBL has it in its current version ?
It could make circle cutting smoother.

Thanks

So I picket up this project again. used TFTP implementation of windows and used "tftp -i 192.168.1.9 PUT test.txt" to send the file. The display keep stating "recieve file" and nothing happens. Everithing is fine when I use Visicut. What am I missing. Some sending confirmation?

RE: Simplecode ARC and SFTP - Added by jaap about 4 years ago

Can you try what happens if you put your TFTP client in binary (octet) mode before sending the file?

RE: Simplecode ARC and SFTP - Added by arjan about 4 years ago

Yes I did. the -I dash in TFT means binary. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff698993.aspx

Any other hints? Somehow Visicut does it right. Could there be something wrong with the text file? (ansi/utf8?)

RE: Simplecode ARC and SFTP - Added by jaap about 4 years ago

Strange. If it works from that machine in Visicut, it should work in any TFTP client too. Are you using the latest firmware? I've just uploaded the firmware with the changes we made in the workshop last weekend: https://github.com/LaosLaser/Firmware/blob/master/laoslaser-14-05-2014.bin

Just tested it with a TFTP client on linux, that works fine.
