See previous post for link to video of use: iOS and Android Carbide Motion DRO Pendant
Here are links to google and apple stores for the open beta. Apple requires you to download their TestFlight app if you want test on an iOS device.
You need Carbide Motion 428 or greater (up to 413 as of 2/28/2020).
Your Android or Apple device must be on the same network as the computer running Carbide Motion.
Carbide Motion tries to listen on port 8080. The app won’t work if you have something else listening on port 8080. You need to make sure port 8080 isn’t blocked by your firewall.
If you want to browse and load a file using the app you need to run the FileNavigator service: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1uCNOxuGXyXZGdvlbri_DvTEZUH1V6ED4
This service runs on Windows 10 and listens on port 5000. Doesn’t need to be on the same system as Carbide Motion. Port 5000 must not be in use on the system or be blocked by the firewall.
You can run without the file navigator and if you’ve already loaded a file in Carbide Motion you can run, pause, increase/decrease speed, etc.
I suggest running the following test with your emergency stop close at hand to confirm functionality.
The main screen asks for the IP address of the Carbide Motion machine and the File Navigator machine. These can be different machines. If you aren’t using the navigator use the same address as CM - it’ll look for the service, not find it and use a mock.
If you’ve already connected and homed the machine using CM you’ll automatically bypass those menus. If not then you’ll be prompted to connect and home.
Do the following:
Jog->Rapid->C (center) - you’ll see the DRO in the top left button change as the machine jogs to the center. You can try all nine positions.
Done->Set Zero->Zero All - you see the DRO change from current offset to (0,0,0)
Tap the DRO button - it’ll change to red and show absolute machine coords, tap again to go back to blue and relative coords.
Done->0.01 mm - DRO changes from millimeters to inches. Tap again to change back.
Incr ±> Incr + - changes the jog distance button (top right) to 1.0 mm
Play with the X, Y, and Z arrow buttons to see the DRO change accordingly. Holding your touch should job multiple times until released.
If you have a click Probe and try the various probe options.
Cancel out of Probe and hit Done to return to the main screen.
Tapping on Load File shows the mock navigator or allows browsing if you installed the FileNavigator.
If you’ve loaded a file to run you can click run - the app DOES NOT prompt for tool change but the machine pauses for tool change. Hit run again to continue.
Feedrate buttons with change the ‘ovr’ value on the status button (blue button middle row far left).
