Is anybody using UCGS (Universal G Code Sender) with an Arduino? It sort of works with my adapted G-Code reader but I can't find any help on the control panel of UCGS.

It seems that after the execution of a g-code the program expects an "ok" reponse, but I can't find out if that needs to have an \n on the end or not.

Also I can't see documented what "override speed" means, or the thumb twiddle thingy which is by default is at 60. 60 what?

I've googled till my goolies fell to the floor. I must be missing something obvious.

For the moment I simply want to send a few gcode commands slowly to the machine....

Presumably not...

G codes 6 years ago if I remember right needed a (.N) at the end of a line. Are you using this on a
zero turn type robot, if so I think you would need a (C rotation axis) please don't shoot me if this is
not correct " 6 years ago if I remember right " REMEMBER would be the operative word, might have
been the 60's were a little too good to me  :o

I don't think they need a .N, unless you mean newline.

I've given up on the UGCS, I can't find out how to use it and so can't find out if it is useful to me. I'll write my own, I only need to send a small subset of the complete g-code language.

Thanks anyway.

Just taking a shot in the dark that the links below might be useful.

There does not seem to be a place where the GUI is explained.

Thanks again, but I'm not using it any more...

Can you forward me what you were having a problem with. My friend might be able to figure it out. The software you were using is something he can download. I would be happy to share with you what he finds out. Then you could use it as a backup if needed.

Thanks, but as I said I'm not intending to use it any more.
