@dc42 said in N539/N538 not working in 3.4:
Sorry about the late response. I took the machine apart a month ago for some modifications and it took a month+ to receive the parts. I'm in the process of putting it together again and some reprogramming will be needed too.
@3discnc said in N539/N538 not working in 3.4:I was using N539 in RFF3.3 on the 12864 LCD; in 3.4 it shows 0.
Thanks for reporting this. I have now fixed it. The fix will be in 3.4.0 stable.I am designing a replacement G29 grid scanner and run into the limited string space of RFF. I cannot find any means to truncate a float and so cannot pack enough floats (17+?) into this limited 120 byte string space. Any advice on this?
Perhaps you could use multiple strings with fewer floats in each?
Already tried that but how do I put the two strings in the height map as a single sting (i.e. no CR/LF)?
Since there are no arrays I had to resort to 20 variables. Apparently these are not directly addressed or looked-up but searched for at each access, this makes them very slow. The further down, the slower. Perhaps something to look into. I've shortened the var's to two characters, that helped a bit
We will probably support array-valued variables in RRF 3.5.
Those will be welcomed with open arms!
I also have no clue how to use '#' to get a stringlen value. How is this supposed to work?
Trivial example:echo #("hello"^"world") 10
That takes care of strlen() but, it would greatly help if I could truncate strings since I don't need fractional nanometre resolution (yet). ;o)
My Maestro manages to erase the CD card from time to time. I've seen this happen on several crashes into the X end-stop and a (probably) non ending loop.
Does this happen while your macros are writing to the SD card?
Don't really know and also it does not happen every 5 minutes. I home (or some process) the machine and it crashes as soon as X-stop is hit. The LCD is emptied and the Maesto does not respond of even reboot. On my PC the card is not recognized (Windows asks Reformat Y/N?). I reformat and copy a backup onto the card and all is well. How well depends on the amount of work lost. I was intensively modifying the system macros over the network, with the accompanying reboots and whatnot.
