Ok, here’s the back story. I LOVE Carbide Motion…but until I can convince @Jorge to make a 4-Axis Controller, I decided to go the SuperGerbil (SG) controller in the meantime. Now this means I needed to use another motion controller…and SG demands that you use UGS (to start since they have a wizard that sets the controller and machine up).
I have read every tutorial and vied every video and while I can get it to do everything I need, I want more, and I see some quirks that annoy me.
So who wants to take me under their wing?
Ain’t that pretty? (PS 1:4.5 Scale Model)
This a scrap Setup Part

And while NOT really advance, for the life of me I cannot figure out how/where to import my GRBL (saved) setting…or how to export them after I add them manually. GO ahead search search YouTube, Google for this item…I’ll wait…see nothing…absolutely no information out there. Never-mind that you need a Ph’d in computer science to install the darn thing…ok, phew…I vented. As AvE would say: Gah-Bage
I never got that far…it loads, connects, but my wonderful (that sarcastic) SuperGerbil (kickstarter) board has some serious problems and hence I need to reload the GRBL setting…often…and I could not see how to save them, and researching it proved fruitless…so I abandoned it.
Are you comfortable reflashing the board with updated firmware?
You could define your machine defaults there and then you’d basically just need to do a “reset” anytime you wanted to go back to those defaults. If you change your settings often, that wouldn’t be ideal though.
I think @mikep switched to super gerbil and solved some issues with the firmware…he might be of help.
