Homing cycle updated.
You can now use the shortcut from your desktop to start up Candle. No further installation is required.
Note: Before you get started, disconnect any offline controllers. Your CNC can only connect to one controller at a time. With Candle loaded up you will want to check the status in your device window, this will help you understand if you have an active connection. See the instructions below for the status that you see upon first loading up Candle:.
More often than not, “Not Connected” is what you should see when you open Candle for the first time. If this is the case, then Candle was unable to automatically find your router and you must manually configure it. Start off by checking the Baud Rate. This is a constant, but varies depending on the model of CNC that you have:. With the baud rate set up correctly, we will next need to find the correct port for connecting your CNC. Ports are like unique, individual addresses for the various ports on your PC.
Once you hit the little refresh button, only current active ports should be shown; the more stuff you have connected, the more you might see.
There are ways to figure out the exact port using the device manager, but to keep it simple and since there are usually only 1 or 2 ports are listed go ahead and select one from the dropdown menu. In order to test if this is the correct port, you will need to select “OK” at the bottom of the settings menu and then check your CNC status and see if it has changed to “Idle”, “Alarm” or “Port Opened”.
If you see any of those three you have the correct port selected and you can move on to addressing your new CNC status, but if you still see “Not Connected” then it is time to go back into settings and try the next port on the list. If, after trying all the ports listed, you still see “Not Connected” as your status then please reach out to us at support sainsmart.
The “Alarm” state is what the aformentioned CNC’s default to every time you start up Candle, and is totally normal. What this state means is that until a Homing Cycle has been run the CNC will remain largely unresponsive as a safety measure. So what you might be asking yourself, what is a homing cycle?
This is a process where the CNC uses the limit switches installed on it to find the “Home” location where your CNC can reliably go at any time to orient itself. In order to home your CNC, all you need to do press the button with a house inside of a magnifying glass, and your CNC will start to move.
The home location varies depending on your CNC, see more on the homing process here , but once your CNC stops moving you should see the “Alarm” status change to “Idle” which means that your CNC is good to go. If you are seeing this status, then something has gone wrong. See the points below to troubleshoot:. So now your CNC is connected, either with an “Idle” or “Alarm” status, before starting your first project, take a moment to go back into settings and check a few things. Probe Command: The default probing code may look like it works when you press the probe button, but it is not configured correctly.
