You might have read about the advantages of coloring pages for kids, however have you ever read about the benefits of coloring pages for the adults. Let's inform you that coloring pages are useful for your social-emotional and psychological development of a grownup. There are a lot of items that coloring pages excite in an adult's brain and really do. By this, the adults get to Tackle the life issues with the coloring pages.

You may choose coloring pages at any lot of distinct themes, for either girls or boys. In Thanksgiving, select themed sheets and also encourage the youngsters to put up them around the house.

From the facts mentioned above, we've said the fact that it would be suitable for the child to prevent technology for a little. However, it is a necessary thing to be practiced as it may hinder the growth of motor skills to refrain children from computer devices in a tender age. In addition, you must keep a check on their own day to day routine for ensuring functioning of the kid 's body and mind.

The coloring dependency will continue to keep the kid to spare some relaxing time for his kid, and he'll be much in relaxation than before due to his proper time spent in artwork and coloring. Their child's comfort level will be evident.

Filling colors on the coloring pages can introduce them to several colors which were called the children, and filling colors it that the simplest way to identify colors, also it supplies essential information regarding colors. The recognition is an important part of life, therefore the teachers need to introduce different colors and shapes in an early. These items will help kids for growth that is successful and provide essential information about the classification.

The main thing which each child must possess is the ability to focus, and there are lots of things in life that need a kid to focus and nothing else. With focus abilities, the kids can comprehend the problem in the very simplest way possible and are able to concentrate better at the place. The Coloring pages are very helpful in increasing the focus skills of their child as it requires complete concentration of their kids so they don't color from the border of the pictures.

Late to the game but if you look to the source in /src/modules/robot/Robot.cpp, E parameter is not supported.

Would you mind sharing your configuration? Have the exact same question.

Hi, did you find the solution?
if so please can you share this with me I have the same problem?

Just a quick follow up, not sure anyone reads this anymore, but anyway;

Two years on and the Duet is still working every time I fire it up, haven't had to do anything to it in that time. Such a change from the debacle of the smoothie board.

That's it,
bye for now.

Re: Can't control P1.23 by antmanauantmanau, 12 Apr 2020 09:22

Forgot to mention this, but I've also tried swapping the Tx and Rx lines. It was complete radio silence when I did that. Not even the debugging info came through, so I'm confident I have them the right way around without swapping.

I also tried to grab the debug info at multiple baud rates, and it was always different levels of gibberish. I don't think it's in ascii, so I can't really confirm if I'm running the right baud.

Hey all,

I'm trying to talk to my V1.0 Smoothieboard using a serial connection. I am using a 768-1032-ND USB/Serial converter from Digi-Key and here is my config file:

I set the Smoothie to talk at 9600 baud, but that's all I've changed in the config as far as communication stuff goes. I also just flashed it with the latest firmware this morning. So far I've been able to receive the debugging info, but it's just a bunch of gobledegook to me:

It does not respond to anything I send it. I've tried GCode, as well as the help console command. No luck. I've also tried a whole slew of baud rates, from 75 to 128,000, still nada.

Currently I only have the Rx, Tx, and Ground wired to the USB/Serial converter. I did try also wiring the RTS and CTS pins, but that didn't seem to change anything. I am supplying a separate 5V to the Smoothieboard, so I do not have the 5V line wired from the USB/Serial converter.

I can get everything to work over USB, so there shouldn't be other hardware issues.

Anyone have any experience with this?

This was the first thread I found when trying to solve this problem. Then I found a youtube video that had the solution in the comments lol. If anyone else is having this issue then try this as it had worked for me without having to restart the print. In the settings menu of Pronterface, goto the viewer tab and check the "Use a lighter 3D visualization" check box. Then hit resume and pause a few times. If view /Pause is grayed out, hit reset and it will tell you it is already printing and show the pause/resume button again. I was printing a 3 million line print and it was at 97% when it failed. It picked back up as if nothing happened.

I know this is an old thread, but I was able to get the BLtouch to deploy by disabling my panel. ( the enable feature set to false )
i tested this on quite a few attempts, and in all cases, the only thing i changed in the config was enabling/disabling the panel
in each case i sent a deploy/stow command using pronterface terminal. M280 and m281

additionally, I got my panel AND the BLtouch working by removing some of the pull-up designations on the EXP pins for the panel. ( not sure why that would make a difference. )

Also, in full disclosure, I'm using an MKS Sbase 1.3 board.

I have same problem. So i replace LPC1769 with new one. Is it necessary flash bootloader for new chip?

What pin do i use for analog input om smoothieboard? and is it 0-3.3v or 5.0v?

Using the following

Early smoothieboard
Pronterface over Ethernet (TCP-streaming on)
Cura for slicing

Machine and computor hard wired to same switch

Has anyone gotten the BLTouch to work with the X5 Mini WiFi?


X5 Mini WiFi BLTouch by bcrazycramerbcrazycramer, 01 Nov 2019 15:48

Any luck on getting the BLtouch to work on the X5 Mini Wifi?


i'm using morgan scara
i built a scara robot, with X Y arm length 200mm
i'm using optical endstop Xmin and Ymax and mechanic endstop on Z (i would know if soft endstops can be used for bed size limit) can its works in this mode?
i would set bed size of 300x220 with 0,0 in this way should work also in negative

Cartesian grid strategy leveling seems work

At the moment my robot is drawing (not print), if I try to draw the perimeter of a square, it does not draw straight lines, can this problem be due to the kinematics or the length of the arms?

Than you in advance!

I don't see AVCC in the pinout diagram. Could somebody please point this out to me. Thanks! :)

I had this same problem and the solution is to supply voltage straight from the + side of your dc power to the board to the brown "V" wire for each of these endstops. These endstops are NPN type proximity sensors and will need 12 to 30 volts to work. My MKS V1.4 supplied 5V which worked for some reason but on the Smoothie V1.3, the V pin on the endstop plugs only outputs 4.78V which just won't allow the endstop to operate properly- the led just lit dimmly. Once I pulled he brown "V" wire loose from it's white three pin connector and supplied 24volts to it, it began sensing normally again.

I had a similar problem. My prints were coming out skewed on an angle like I was losing steps, but I'm running servo motors that can't skip steps. It turned out to be my pulse length was to long. I was using a 4 microsec pulse and my driver was skipping a step on ever direction change skewing my prints. I shortened the pulse length and the problem went away. I'm not saying this is what's happening to you, but it might save someone some frustration.
