I've figured it out, it looks like "M03" sets the mode such that "S" controls the spindle. "A1" doesn't seem to do anything for me.
Out of curiosity, do you know of any documentation for the entirety of the G codes?
I'm controlling my eleksdraw by sending it gcode via minicom. It's using grbl 0.9, installed via eleksrom. I can control X and Y positions, but I cannot get the pen to lift. The inkscape plugin uses the command M05 to lift the pen, but sending this code does nothing. If I try to send a command like Z1 to lift the pen via Z position, the servo makes a sound but does not move.
What gcode commands are needed to lift the pen? And do I need to be using a newer version of grbl?
I've come up with this so far: https://gist.github.com/JosephJNK/694e4465eac974bceadef48ef97d2d39
I just used 2to3 to convert the script to python3, removed the #! line, and fixed a couple of issues with operator overloading. It successfully produces gcode for me now, but the gcode isn't working on my device. @megrimm, can you see if this works for you?
