OneFinity Firmware 2.0 alpha 3 (I hope this review is more helpful than confusing )
Test configuration: The controller and a PC, using Firefox browser, are hardwired on the intranet.
Woodworker with a Z-20, added X/Y proximity switches.
The default screen resolution on the controller monitor (the original 7" from
OneFinity) causes a lot of screen scrolling.
(The monitor is turned on before controller power up.)
I don’t know how this relates to known 1366x768 issue.
I haven’t researched the forum yet for resolution settings.
“Welcome … getting started” startup should have a metric/imperial choice.
Wi-fi setup could use a “Skip” option. (I know, “Next” works)
I did the “Welcome… getting started” and then changed all my particular settings.
I did a backup to the PC. See below, the controller settings will be lost on the next power cycle.
Same issues with disapearing Hamburger menu as mentioned in previous 2.0 posts.
To reproduce the situation:
After you get through “Welcome… getting started” settings,
go to the menu Admin and Restore setting. It will say success and
Without warning the monitor will go black and after 1:30 or so it
will flash rebooting. After 2 minutes the screen will be back with no menu.
Power off and on power up, the “Welcome… getting started” is back.
With just a few cycles, it seems that any setting change/save will cause
another “Welcome … getting started”.
To continue with testing, I ignored changing my settings after “Welcome… getting started” reboot.
I skipped homing during testing since I can’t save the necessary settings for proximity switches.
First I just cancelled the “Load selected file” window.
I don’t think it showed which file.
I did load a file from the PC and it displayed the part nc path, same with a second file.
(2 files not enough to test if loading and selecting files correctly)
I did a shutdown and a power up (“power-cycle”). It did not show the “Welcome… getting started” and
did the pop-up “Load selected file” window. I selected to load the file, it did.
I then used the control to delete a selected file so there was a blank field for selected file.
I did a “power-cycle” and again the “Load selected file” window. First file on the list I guess.
This “Load selected file” window confuses me. Didn’t 1.3 already have the last file used
loaded on power up? (I don’t remember and to hard to switch SD cards to check)
This is a feature???
The controller monitor goes black after serveral minutes of non-use.
Tapping the black screen has no effect.
Turning the monitor off/on has no effect. It doesn’t say “no signal” like
after powerdown. I started the PC browser to do a shutdown.
It would be nice that if there still is a signal to the monitor something is shown.
Is there a raspberry setting to keep the screen on during inactivity. Hate to see a
black screen when a part is running.
