Post Help with Norwegian drawing...

Hi Sandy, et al...
So, I've got my Polargraph SD upgraded an working with vector drawings and other images... now, I'm ready to venture into exploring the Norwegian option. I found some old instructions, dated August 4, 2012, but, they don't seem to work with the newest controller program... roving tab is quit different.
So, can you give me a step by step guide for using the Norwegian option...

Thanks in advance... this device is great!

Tom

Hi Tom, great to see you wrangling Norwegian Pixel!

Roving tab hasn't really changed since then, still do the same thing as in that guide from way back (http://www.polargraph.co.uk/2012/08/norwegian-pixel/):

On the roving tab:
1) "select area" that you want the drawing to go into
2) "send roving area" to the machine - this tells it what space it should be confined to
3) "draw norwegian" which pops up the dialog box where you enter the filename, the wave amplitude and wave length, and can do a trial "trace outline"

You say it doesn't work ... can you say what you've tried and what happens instead?

Hi... step (2) was the problem... I did't do it! Simple solution.
It's running now and appears to be doing what it's designed to do.

Thanks Sandy.
