Thanks for the great work on the new version! The fixes you noted work perfectly. (no more 'eol' or file creation errors).
Just as a note for anyone that might get a DXY 885. The DIP switches are as follows
UDDDDUDD (doesnt have the 2 extra switches that the 880 has)
As far as device files, ive just been selecting the 880's which seems to work fine. Chiplotle does recognise the hardware as 'DXY 885'.
I have been working my way through the example files and i seem to be running into the same problem. I am having troubles with the hpgl commands in the python script (and going straight through chiplotle too for that matter). Simple things like SP( ) and PU( ) are being returned as;
NameError: name 'PD' is not defined (this comes from the zigzag example)
If i change the code to 'plotter.pen_down(coords)' its works fine. This is ok for the simple codes but is obviously a bit trickier with longer ones. Am i missing something simple?
Thanks again for the great work
