Thanks, @WillAdams. I seem to have stepped head first into a deeper problem trying to get my S3XXL to act like a laser cutter with Grbl 1.1. I can now no longer do anything more than connect to the CarbideMotion board. After that, all I get is error:13 in UGS 1.0.9, “error: Check Door: Safety door detected as opened and door state initiated.” in UGS Platform (which is the same as error:13 in UGS 1.0.9), and nothing happens if I try and home with Carbide Motion 4. I had no motion or homing problems prior to re-loading the settings with the dropdown menu in CM4. The best I can figure is that the CarbideMotion board thinks it’s controlling a Nomad instead of a S3XXL. It shouldn’t be paying attention to the Nomad’s safety door interlock in the first place.
My order of operations was this:
- Reflash CM 2.4c board with the Carbide3D Grbl 1.1 updater from Grbl 0.9
- Ran 8-10 files using UGS 1.0.9 and UGS Platform with no errors or problems related to safety doors
- Because of some strange behavior observed during jogging, I tried loading the default Grbl settings to the controller board via CM4
- After I did that, I was no longer able to control the S3 without errors relating to the safety door. There are also red ad green LED’s flashing on the board that were not there before.
I have been trying to use XLoader to roll back to 0.9 but it just hangs on “Uploading…,” and have also tried to re-flash 1.1 with the CarbideGrblUpdater, but that doesn’t seem to change any of the symptoms.
Finally, I’ll just mention that the LED’s do not start flashing until I connect to the board. Otherwise I just have a solid blue power light.
