Hi,

Yes I set the speed of the serial monitor to 9600 like in the code.
I think upload succeed, there is no error on Arduino IDE. Tomorrow I will publish a screen shot of the upload report.
In Inkscape, when I try to control Sphere’o’bot I have a message like : “failed to connect to eggbot:(“

Hi,

Here is the log from Arduino IDE for upload :

I’m working on port COM 2. Upload seems OK

But nothing happens with serial monitor and inkscape…

Did you check the BAUDs rate on the Arduino IDE serial monitor? Try with 115200
Where did you get the Arduino code from?

Try restarting your computer. It looks like the COM port is busy? Maybe Arduino IDE is using the port not letting you to control the Sphere-o-bot from Inkscape

Hi,

I restarted my computer. The behavior is still the same “Unable to find an Eggbot on any serial port. :(“

On device manager, i see ARDUINO ZERO (COM1)

Are we sure that eggbot script is compatible with windows 64 bits ?

News : I’m still investigate on my problem : I print some trace on eggbot.py. It seems command “serialPort.write(‘vr’)” doesn’t work.
I restart again my computer : no change.
I don’t understand : eggbot.py is not able to write on port COM1 but Arduino IDE succeed… any ideas?

IT WORKS !!!!!!

I uninstall my inkscape version and install the 32bit version.

Now communication between inkscape and eggbot works well.

Thanks you for your help.

If necessary I could delete my message and only keep the conclusion. say me

Good!
Just let me ask: You are not using the Inkscape portable version then? You downloaded the 32bits version and installed the eggbot plugin? Is that correct?
This info may help other users 🙂
Enjoy your sphere-o-bot!

Hi,

Yes, I was not using the Inkscape portable version. It was the Inkscape 0.92 64b version. So I Uninstall it and install the 32b version.
After I installed eggbot pluggin. I check all the modification needed and describe in the first page of this topic.

At the end, it works ! I’m so happy 😀
