Hi there, new to all this so please be gentle with me! Having sizing issues with the Vigo Tech software, having read around the subject a little, it appears that there are a lot of issues around this product and the simplest answer is to change the control board to something compatible with GRBL. Can anyone recommend a suitable replacement board if they have found this to be a sucessful solution? Thanks in advance!
Here are instructions that @LuA_Knives provided for how to update the firmware to be standard GRBL on the board that is shipped with the product:
Thanks mcdanlj for the rapid reply, it is very much appreciated. I will have a go and updating the firmware.
Have had a look at the software that came with the machine and cannot see that hex file anywhere. Is there anywhere I can download it from?
Thank you again.
Sorry ignore my last post!
OK so I cannot get the firmware to update on this device. I found the GRBL firmware and used the supplied XLOADER, carefully following the instructions but it eventually failed (after a few hours). After this, the supplied Vigotec software no longer connects and trying to update back to the supplied firmware fails - so I appear to be screwed! Can anyone help? If I need to buy a new control board, can anyone recomment one that is compatible with the 4 pin Vigo laser? Thanks.
