Hi All! Just got a machine up and running using TinyG and Chilipeppr.

Hi All! Just got a machine up and running using TinyG and Chilipeppr. I’m such a newb that it’s probably unconscionable that a person with so little knowledge would even consider trying to get into this… but here we are.

At any rate, I was just wondering if there is an easy way (I know 0 gcode but would love to be able to directly change the parameters if possible) to scale the Chilipeppr logo larger so that I can run a test? Right now I’ve just attached a Sharpie to Z so that it will draw.

john might no a better way, but in terms of scaling gcode, if you download out the g-code for the logo, something like this should let you scale it:

Or, just set your steps/mm in your TinyG config to be less steps than normal and you’ll get a larger output. i.e. divide steps/mm in half to get 2x as big output.

Thanks John. I just went into $tr and set each motor to half of the setting I used from https://github.com/synthetos/TinyG/wiki/Dual-Gantry-Configuration and it worked! Appreciate
