Hello and welcome to the forum!

The ISO disk image and the instructions for installation are available on our Downloads page. To go over the main points:

1) Go to the Downloads page and scroll down to the ISO image files for Linux SBC section
2) Download the pi4-2020-0125.iso.7z file
3) After the file has downloaded, un-archive it using the 7z archiver.
4) Burn the file onto the card using the balenaEtcher software
5) Insert the card into the Raspberry Pi computer to use for bootup

The full set of instructions is available here: http://docs.pv-automation.com/quickstar ... inkerboard

These instructions are for TinkerBoard computers, however the setup process should be the same.

Thanks Ivan,
As per your instruction I downloaded Image and burned ISO using balenaEtcher.When microSD was put in Raspberry pi4 it did not turned on display which was connected to HDMI port of Raspberry pi4!

Kindly advise troubleshooting,do I have install anything else before burning our image?

Thank You ,

Glad to hear the display issues have been fixed. What ended up being the problem?

In order to switch the technology you need to switch the profile. To do that, go into Settings > Info, select the profile you would like to switch to, click the Save Profile button, confirm and reload the application. In your case, you probably need the X1366P profile:

All of our manuals are available online on our documentation wiki: http://docs.pv-automation.com/

Plasma setup: http://docs.pv-automation.com/examples/plasma-x1366p

Oxy-fuel setup: http://docs.pv-automation.com/quickstar ... fuel-setup

All of the configuration settings dialogs are explained in the Configuration manual, also on the wiki: http://docs.pv-automation.com/mycnc/myc ... on_dialogs

The search bar is located in the top right corner of each page - if any information is missing or if any manuals are incomplete, do let us know and we will expand them.

I'd recommend making sure that your computer IP address and your myCNC controller IP address are in the same subnet (we recommend 192.168.4.50 for the computer and 192.168.4.78 for the controller).

The instructions for this are available on our documentation wiki.

General network setup: http://docs.pv-automation.com/quickstar ... work-setup

Changing the IP address of the myCNC control board: http://docs.pv-automation.com/mycnc/cha ... trol_board

Changing the IP address of your computer (Ubuntu MATE): http://docs.pv-automation.com/mycnc/cha ... mputer_sbc

In general, do not hesitate to consult the FAQ and Troubleshooting pages first should a problem arise - we try to describe all the common issues there.

Hello there. The Raspberry Pi disk image has only been released recently, so unfortunately there are still some things left to iron out. Please bear with us.

For the USB drive:

1) Create a folder named DNC in your home folder (as it has not been created yet). This folder can then be accessed from within the myCNC application.

2) For the USB drive - open the Terminal and type in

Code: Select all

sudo chmod 0777 /media/pi
Plug the USB drive back in, and the issue should be solved.

Let me know if that helps.
