Post NO TEST PEN WIDTHS

hi,

i have problems with testing the pen widths.

i have:
the latest PolargraphSD v3.0 full assembled kid. So its the new one I guess.
I don't really know if I have the Arduino uno or mega, sorry

I did some good drawings already. I tried some settings and learning how the machine is working.

But, I cannot test the pen widths! I did it like it is written here: https://www.instructables.com/id/Polargraph-Drawing-Machine/

but no results.

happy to get some help 😉 thx!

Oops! Good spot 🙂

Embarrassingly: https://github.com/euphy/polargraph_server_polarshield_esp32/blob/master/src/exec.ino#L43-L44 shows this command commented out.

I commented all the functions out when I was porting to ESP32, and gradually put them back in with fixed. I don't know why I left this one!

I'll have a go at restoring it, sorry!

I've just pushed a new change to https://github.com/euphy/polargraph_server_polarshield_esp32 that reinstates the function!

Hi! There's a few ways to upload it, shown here:
