I have about a week to decide if this software is usable or a piece of junk, currently I’m leaning against the latter.
My machine is a Raw 1.5 with an Arduino Uno and (currently) a Chinese GRBLshield copy.
The gantry has 700x700mm of travel in X and Y direction and 90mm movement in the Z-axis.
Moving in the z axis is no problem but when I try to move as little as 1mm in either X or W I get this “error message” in the transcript window:
“Waiting for connection…
Grbl 1.1h [’$’ for help]
[MSG:’$H’|’X' to unlock] ok [MSG:Caution: Unlocked] ok [VER:1.1h.20190825:] [OPT:V,15,128] Target buffer size found ok Starting stream ALARM:2 G-code motion target exceeds machine travel.

[MSG:’$H’|’$X’ to unlock]
Is there any way to evalutare te actual G-code sent to the controller to try to figure out what goes wrong with X and Y byt not with Z???
