Re: Jedicut and Arduino over USB

#211
Hi there, Jerome, Martin , Vicent and all,
I have been using Jedicut in my oldie XP for a few years... , even before I used arduinos, and fearing either the machine will fall and XP concerns themselves I came back to Jedicut forum and found this thread. (Which I did not in the past: thanks Jedicut.com).
Well, since last Christmas I have been able to write a variant of Martin original code for Arduino into an arduino compatible variant board type so called the ESP8266. Very low price. This board is limited to only 9 digital outs which is just enough to drive the 4 motor board. I did not use computer control heating so the project was promising...
The good thing of this cheap arduino is that it comes with a wifi adaptor built in it so the temptation was very dificult to resist... the interrupt mangement is totally different and I did no have idea about TCP sockets but....

It is today I can claim that
Jedicut has become wireless !!!
That is now you do not need any more to run long and uncomfortable cables from your computer to the board controller, just install one ESP8266 in front of your controller board and another in your PC any place in your shop!
And in a tribute and acknoledgement to the very hard work Jerome has been doing these years I am in position to share this code to the Jedicut comunity and ecosystem.
Please Jerome, Martin let me know how is the best way you suggest to implement this, also promise to take a few pictures.

Hello Javier !

I'm sorry for the delay of my answer. I'm just discovering your message and... you dit an awesome work ! ::clapping:: ::clapping:: ::clapping::

I would like to know more about this solution ! Maybe you can write a little article to present this solution with photos ?
Do you do any video ?

What plugin of communication do you use whitin Jedicut ? You can send me a zip of your firmware by email and I will publish it on Jedicut's GitHub account, or you can publish it on your own Github account ;)

I'm so exciting about this new solution. Congratulations !
Jerome

Thanks Jerome.
::blush::
I can send you the zip but if knew how,.. by the moment the forum does not allow me to send to your attention a private message. Maybe you can e mail me your addres. I think the best place for placing these extensions would be Jedicut repository so everything is easily accessed, I am as well learning to use my own github repository.

If you are interested I can prepare something this weekend: a few pictures and if I can manage a short video, an article and a read.me.

I want two share two extensions, the one that uses straight forward Martin´s code into ESP8266 and connects via usb the table. Some modifications were needed.
The other exciting extension is the one that uses two ESP8266 to generate a wifi and have the comandes sent "over the air".

I use USBSerial.dll

Hello all! I´m Alfredo from Brasil. I just finished a arduino uno board with a CNC shield v3. I´ve followed all instructions given by TJMarch on post 207. The motors were tested and all four are working outside jedicut. I did the jedicut configuration using the same parameters as TJmarch on the same post. When I start Jedicut look´s like it is not comunicanting with arduino. I could not find a place to tell Jedicut what port my arduino is using. I do not çnow if is necessary to change the lpt port# to a usb port#.
Best regards to all
Alfredo

Alfredo, in the directory Jedicut.exe is there should be a file: comport.ini
It must read like this
"
;------------------------------------------------
; COM Settings (comport.ini)
;------------------------------------------------

;
[COMPORT]
PORTNUMBER = 4 ; COM4
BAUDRATE = 115200 ; 110,300,600,1200,2400,4800,9600,14400
; 19200, 38400,56000,57600,115200,128000,256000
"
This where you tell the port.

Hello,

I sent you a PM (:D

Thanks !

Hi Javier and Jerôme, Thanks for your help. I found that the problem was with the settings of com port on [b]windows device manager[/b]. After adjusting the settings to 115200, no parity, 8 data bits and 1 stop bit everything start to works right. Now I´m trying to figure out how to control the hot wire using the pwm pin on arduino. What circuit you guys are using? Optocoupler with a triac or other solution. Tomorrow I will cut the first wing using Jedicut using manual heating control. Thanks again. I think I will build a small guide for all new users.
Best regards
Alfredo
