    I'm using S3D to connect with my BigBox dual, and when I try to use the "Machine control Panel" in S3D I get this as the error message about it was unable to communicate. The LCD on the BigBox flashes once like it's rebooting, this is with the SD card in or out. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have included a picture of the error from S3D.

    Because 1987 called... I mean seriously on a 3D printer made in 2016 we are setting baud rates (over USB no less). Just because G-Code is from 1980, we should not (this is no fault of the BigBox) be using a fixed baud rate via USB...

    Ha. I was looking for a recordable DVD today in the office (because 2006 called) as one of my RHEL servers borked, and we couldn't remember where they were. I opened up a drawer in the back room, and thank goodness we are saving those centronics parallel cables (we are all mac)...

    awww leave serial alone :)

    I'll take it over some nasty custom bidirectional stack running on usb which requires properitary drivers (like how inkjet printers work) plus it's just native on the chip and trivial to code for.

    Plus Windows 64 bit demands signed drivers which are an utter pain for opensource projects, so anything that requires a custom driver on Windows rather than a generic one is hard work.

    Ugh, being a mac and linux guy, that's less of an issue for me. It's more that we are manually setting baud rates, etc in this day and age...
