Hi all,

This is my second post after my introductory post on the New Member Introductions section.

I installed Universal Gcode Platform on both my Windows PC and Macbook but can only get the 3018 Pro connected using the Macbook.

I found an example .gcode test file to run -- when I click the play button on the application is when I get the error pop-up.

Anyone else on this forum experience similar issues before?

Hopefully one of guru’s will see this and lend a hand.

I've installed:

  • Universal Gcode Platform
  • FTDIchip USB driver
  • grbl firmware
  • Java

Was able to connect to a port but the Controller State (DRO) says it is still disconnected.

Download and use Open Builds, UGS is horribly glitchy. I never use it. Open Builds is very simple, connect your port, set material, open code, and hit run. Simple as that, no jumping through hoops, or trying to figure out all the UGS error codes. You will not have all those annoying errors any more.
