Hi, I am trying to upload GRBL 1.1 but get a couple of compiling errors. I haven’t altered the code at all, got it straight off GitHub. Any suggestions as to what forums or places I can contact for advice?
Does this warning relate to your problem? "NOTE: Before starting, delete prior Grbl library installations from the Arduino IDE. Otherwise, you'll have compiling issues! On a Mac, Arduino libraries are located in ~/Documents/Arduino/libraries/. On Windows, it's in My Documents\Arduino\libraries. On Linux (Ubuntu), it's in /usr/share/arduino/libraries".
Hi Paul, Thanks for your suggestion, but I had made sure the folder was empty. I have attached a screen shot of the IDE screen. I noticed the config file is in red and wonder if it thinks there is a problem with it. it should be a stable build. I don’t know what to do from here. Any ideas?
Hi Again, I got it! You were right. Went back and deleted all files. re-booted computer, reconnected Arduino and tried again. got a successful upload. Thanks for your help!
In the config.h file around line 90 the section on homing begins. The grbl configuration page has a good description of how to enable the homing cycle and how to set it up. Look for $22 Homing cycle, boolean.
I just installed the grbl library and was able to compile the grblUpload example (File -> Examples -> grbl -> grblUpload) for the Arduino UNO without error.
To install the library:
- Go to: https://github.com/grbl/grbl
- Download it as a .ZIP file
- Expand the .ZIP file on your PC
- Drag the resulting grbl-master/grbl folder to the Arduino/libraries folder
- Run Tools->Manage Libraries... to update the library list. (You can close it now.)
