    @RgblGru

    Sorry

    it seems like;

    the stock box is functionally , but I only use a 2D engaver G-code so of courcea I couldn't see a box

    It seem that the 2D scaling of dxf files etc is missing from this Beta ,

    - The menu item "Save Project" is only active when geometry data is loaded.

    - The same applies to the Stockbox display.

    - To be able to save machine 3018 you must first create a machine 3018 and load the STL objects.

    - There is no possibility to stop the machine if a limit switch is passed. Only the red display appears.
    This allows you to see in one run where (there can be many) collisions occur.

    - The 2D Scale button is missing, because I am currently replacing it with another function in the new beta. ( Right mouse context menu in the 2S view - 'Open Editor')
    I will describe it if everything works

    Your ideas for the display of the input signals are certainly useful. But you can control many different processors with my program.
    Currently these are GRBL, TinyG, G2CORE and MEGA-5X. That's why I don't want to commit myself to a certain function of a single processor.
    The interface should be completely processor independent. So when you open the controller window, you are talking directly to the connected processor.
    GrblGru only offers you the infrastructure for this. I hope you have some understanding for this.

    In case you want to control your limit switches, it might be better to use one of the other Gcode senders.
    Most of them concentrate on one processor and provide e.g. also plain text displays for the parameters. For example, 'X Max rate' instead of $110 (in case of GRBL)

    @GrblGru

    Thanks for answering

    I understand your point to not be to details of a certain hardware , and instead concentrate on the overall picture . My point to read more than one command answer in the commande window before the information is erases is such more overall feedback.

    @LH4PI
    I still have questions. It might be a bit more comfortable to exchange information via email.
    If you agree, please send me a private forum message with an email address. I will then contact you.

    Hi GrblGru

    Version 3.44.13 does not show gcode when clicking on the green “Start” button.

    I sent you, a private message PM with titled “time zone”.

    WOW!

    Excellent work, new features, very good.
    Hi guys, download version 3.44.16 and help GrblGru solve problems.

    Release notes V3.45

    Lately I have unfortunately not been able to document the changes of GrblGru.
    In fact, a lot of internal improvements have been made in the meantime, which will put the further development on a solid base.
    But hopefully there have also been some improvements, especially in the area of simulation and the display of the tool path.
    Also some new machine models like a new styrofoam cutter, a grinding machine or different robot arms have been added.
    Finally the new editor mode has been added, which allows to scale, rotate and reposition selected geometric objects (DXF or SVG).

    I hope that I will be able to deliver the corresponding documentation in the near future.
    In the new video I have therefore dealt with the robot arms, which can be produced with 3D printers and are therefore quite cheap.

    Have fun with GrblGru

    Sounds cool. I'd like to try it out. FYI the links to dropbox in the first posts of the thread are dead.I skipped to the end of the thread to see if I could find fresh links. I haven't found one yet, but I'll keep looking.

    If you could put a link in the signature to your account, it would probably be helpful. It should update in all of your posts if the link ever has to change. Thanks, look forward to trying it out.

    Sorry, Dropbox has changed their business model and it was no longer possible to provide a download.
    I have had a website at www.GrblGru.com for quite some time now, where you can download the program for free.

    Thank you for the great software.
    from Japan.
    I created a machine model for CNC3018.
    It may be due to Japanese localization, but the position of the stock box is shifted.
    In V3.44, this is normal, but in V3.45, the polarity of Limit on the Y-axis worked in reverse.

    If there is a way to paste an image or file into this thread, I will send the image or file.

    Hi Glass3Cat

    I have added a 3 d cad model of 3108 and a 5 axis version 3018AB of the same base model made myself and with help of grblgru we have added a simplified model of these two models included from version 3.45.2. I believe that the movement of the base is correct . I have uploaded a pdf of the original model I created so you can see it in more detail compared to the model in GRBLGRU .

    It should be interested to know if your model is similar to mine .

    Hi LH4PI

    I downloaded Ver3.456 and confirmed it.
    The 3-axis CNC3018 worked correctly.
    Thank you very much.
    When only A axis was added to CNC3018, A+.stl, s1+.stl, s2+.stl, s3+.stl did not work with Ver3.456 and Ver3.45. Ver.3.44 works but the movement is not normal.

    If you can log in to facebook, you can see my CNC3018 model at the url below.
    It is a freecad file, but you can download the CNC3018.fcstd file.

    @Glass3Cat & LH4PI

    I am sorry to be late for this discussion.
    Thanks to LH4PI for your help.
    Have you solved all problems or are there still open questions ?
    Is there anything else I can do?

    Thank you for uploading Ver3.45.7.
    When importing a DXF file, the image is shifted from the tool position.
    Ver3.44 was able to align with Scale 2D data.
    2D icons are not visible in Ver.3.45 or later.
    Can I add 2D icons?

    Agree with GLASS3CAT about scaling 2D data.
    Some icon's haven't a proper. I can help with the text file. Please send procedure to my email address: behr@icon.co.za

    @Glass3cat
    Make sure that you have selected the position of the reference point. (pic 1)
    - Go to the 2D view.
    - Press the right mouse button. A context menu appears.
    - Select the menu item "RefPkt" and the position you want

    I replaced the 2d Scale dialog with an editor function in the 2D View. Now it is also possible to scale, rotate and reposition parts of the DXF / SVG geometry. (pic 2)
    - Go to the 2D view.
    - Select all or just parts of the geometry.
    - Press the right mouse button. A context menu appears.
    - Select the menu item "Open Editor".
    Now you can scale, move and rotate the selected area with the left mouse.

    @BehrElec
    I'm not sure what you mean by the text file. Can you please explain ?

    @All

    Thank you for your detailed explanation during your busy time.
    I can now move and scale 2D data.
    The Japanese translation of GrblGru used Language_jp.zip of the following url.

    Wow, thanks for that.
    I didn't know there was a Japanese translation. Can I use it in the next version ?
    Who made it so I could at least thank him.

    I downloaded GrblGru Ver.3.45.10,
    Language_jp.txt and QuickHelp_jp.txt from Language_jp.zip
    By copying to \\ProgramData\GrblGru\Language directory, GrblGru Ver.3.45.10 can be changed to Japanese menu.

    I do not know the author of the Japanese file.
    However, it seems that you can log in to this site from "Login" at the following URL.
    If you translate the page with Google Translate, you will see the letter "Login" third from the bottom left.https://pc-trace.jpn.org/blog/blog.cgi?n=871
