I noticed something similar with version 1.0.
It seems to start fine if the interval setting is 0.090 or 0.095 but other values including 0.100 don’t start.
The software claims the file send successful and the machine run time starts incrementing, but the laser never starts.
I’m using the Ruida 644XG USB device.
Sorry about posting a duplicate issue. I will read closer next time to see if I can find similar issues. It got up into the mid to upper 90s today and it’s hot in the garage. If I can get out tonight I will give it a go.
Sorry I was not feeling well last night so I did not get a chance to try it out. I have good news and bad news :-(. The good news is that with the version linked I was able to use the direction keys to jog the laser. Sadly when I tried to run my program again I hit start and the machine said run and the timer started but the laser just sat still.
Is there any sort of debug information I can provide for you related to this?
And another issue I ran into unfortunately I have not reproduced it past the first try. I ran Clicked the “Get Position” and the application crashed. I am sure it had something to do with the way I started the application and turned on the laser perhaps things were not communicating. Sadly I forgot to grab the stack trace from the window before I closed it.
My best suggestion for Mac users with Ruida devices has been, and continues to be, get a network adapter if you need one ($30) and connect the Mac to the Ruida with a network cable. There are no driver issues, it’s rock solid, and it’s twice as fast.
It seems like each new update of MacOS breaks FTDI compatibility in some new way for some people, and fixes it for some others, and it’s a constant game of whack-a-mole at this point. Every time I’m able to find and fix an issue on my own hardware, it breaks for someone else - versions that I’ve repeatedly had issues with on my hardware work for other people, and I can’t figure out what’s causing it - it’s maddening.
I can understand how difficult keeping up with someone else’s code changing! I will have to take a look at the ethernet option. I was under the under the impression that usb was the way to go
I will look more into it this evening but… Are the controllers doing tcp/ip? Can I throw a wireless bridge on there and set that up? Or is it best to do a direct connection from the computer to the machine and is using some other protocol? I think I brought my network adapter and stuck it a box a year ago :-D. I will dig it out…
I’ve gone out and purchased a network adapter, so plugged that into the usb port on laser (no ethernet port) > plugged into ethernet cable > plugged into USB hub > plugged into laptop. Laser doesn’t work. I’ve tried finding it again in Devices, not recognised. Tried to create manually, using the ethernet option (don’t have ISP address) and tried again with the USB option and it doesn’t work.
Could you please just give me instructions on how to roll it back and clear the settings? I’ve rolled it back and I’m having the same issues. Can you please just tell me how to clear the settings so that it can work on 9.something?
