I use Chilipeppr with my homebrew GRBL/Arduino controlled router to etch, drill and mill circuit boards. I used it to cut one fairly recently (last week) without a problem, but today there seems to be a problem connecting my arduino to the server.
The machine responds to jog commands and moves appropriately when a gcode file is initiated, but the DRO doesn’t change from zeros. The info block widget directly below the DRO widget indicates that the GRBL device is disconnected/offline (despite machine movement). Obviously, the autolevel feature, which is what I really need, fails when trying to measure the first point. When I connect to the device using EFL, a far less feature-rich Gcode sender, the DRO updates just fine - so I think my GRBL/setup is not the problem.
Unfortunately, my mechanical engineering background means that I’m not very good with software or would happily attempt to debug myself. My usual go-to solution is to hit it with a hammer (“percussive maintenance”), but I don’t think that’ll be much help here.
Any thoughts on how I could get back up and running? I suspect that some recent update to chilipeppr/jpadie has broken my setup. Is anyone else having this problem too?
