Hi. I want to make my Eggbot with this program (https://github.com/fablab-fribourg/EggBot).

I have no problems with installing firmware on Arduino but I don't understand instructions where it says start the application but I don't know how I start? Can someone please explain? Thank you very much.

You don't know how to start a Windows program?
That's frightening.

If you check the link you will see that there is no .exe file or something similar. It's frightening that some users are just spamming this forum without even looking....

If you look further, you get the application when you buy the hardware.

It's frightening that you don't bother reading about the product you want to buy.

It's your project. Not mine.

It's pathetic that you don't even buy the application to "start it". LOL.

Lol you still haven't read the link or is it the first time you hear about DIY or open source? It's hard to buy Fablab Fribourg Eggbot Gcode sender...

The question is still how I open this application (Fablab Fribourg Eggbot Gcode sender) or where can I get it. Maybe I have to compile it or something?

opening an application is not the same as where you can get it

If you don't understand that, then it is pretty pathetic.



Be specific about the EXACT problem.
Otherwise, your doctor will be treating you for an earache instead of a headache!

This link shows ALL the distributors. You get the hardware and application program from one of them: That means buy, purchase, etc.

The subject as originally stated is "Eggbot - how I start the application".

If the problem is about buying the application, then that should the subject line.

So these are instructions on the link I have posted:

Steps to print a file

start the application
choose and open the port where the arduino is connected (don't forget to upload the Arduino sketch first)
choose the file you want to print
this is a simple GCode file
you can convert an image with the last version of inkscape (demo)
[Optional] adjust the limits
[Optional] adjust the scale
[Optional] define home
"Print that egg"

It says "start the application" but when I download files from github I cant find this "application" (probably Gcode Sender). So I am asking if something is missing there or it is just me and I don't have known how to open (start) the application. I know how to upload Arduino code and I also know how to use Inkscape.

ieee488

The ZIP file includes java source code.

You need to contact the author whoever it is and ask him if you have questions.
Not us.
He is the guy who claims to have an "application".


ieee488

I just tried to compile his source code MainController.java, and I get 100 errors.


He needs to be more forthcoming about whatever it is required to get his "application" running.

From what I can tell, the linked Github project by the OP is a poor person's version of the product you linked.
