I can get Open Dobot Gui to load. I uploaded the Arduino INO file to the mega, and it shows com4 on the dobot gui, but it won't connect. Not sure where I am going wrong. Or how to test what exactly isn't right.
I tried uploading the oem dobot hex file to my mega board using the dobot software, and it did something but ended with "Receivemessage time out" over and over again. Not sure if this was even necessary for the opendobot gui to work with the ino file. Is there a difference between your Arduino hex file and the oem one?
When it comes to the Arduino, it would appear there are two steps to setting it up, please correct me if I am wrong:
1) upload the hex file
2) upload the ino file
Is it the same INO and HEX files for all application you have developed? Do I need to do both?
Also, I am confused as to where in the software development series the support for ramps ends?
Still wondering if all the other open dobot software, such as Open Dobot 1.3.0 is mean to be a bridge between the OEM Dobot GUI and the dobot, or if it in some way is stand alone?
When I run Dobot's OEM "Dobot Application 1.1.1", it seems to connect with my mega, but of course nothing happens with the dobot and ramps.
I can't understand what the hierarchy is of the open dobot python files? Is one a master file? Which one's do I load?
Sure hope someone comes back to this board. You have done so much great work, but as a beginner, I can't make heads or tails of it.
