I decided to go for it and compile 1.1 and flash the “Stepoko” controller. As background for folks Sparkfun sold a V3 unit with their own controller. Its stuck at V0.9 and they only sell the Carbide version these days.
I compiled using all the defaults and aside from a “Low Memory” warning on the upload the flash was successful. Jogging more or less works it seems to be in a mode where it does a bunch of tiny steps instead of one big movement for say 1 inch.
Goes downhill from there. Homing always fails and only moves in Z. Carbide motion V4 puts up a bunch of warnings (see attached). UGS also seems unhappy with what it sees coming back over the wire. I also attached the config/console output from UGS.
So Dr. Will – what were those compile settings that you guys used when you build V1.1 for the native controller???!
