QR Codes.
« on: July 03, 2017, 07:39:22 AM »
This is just a test for me to see how well QR Codes behave.
Rather than use a private server I have taken the liberty of using a post in this section of our forum as others may also be interested in some experimentation.

I usually transport Gcode to the dedicated machine PC with a memory stick and this system works perfectly for me but it does not hurt to look at alternative or different methods.

It is very quick & easy to convert Gcode files into a .jpgQR (or other printable format) and it is then equally just as easy to scan that .jpgQR into the clipboard and then directly into Mach.

There are file size limitations imposed by QR image resolution issues but they need to be explored and that is the reason for this post. Obviously I would welcome others thoughts on this topic.

Whilst large QR can be generated the current readers are still expecting to see less than a couple of hundred characters.

did notice on sending an email from my phone to myself it did not format cr/lf
have to do some additional testing but it does have possibilities.
but i am  rookie at these smartphones just bought my first phone a CAT S60 so still learning.

Hi Craig,

Thanks for the head-up about the CR/LF.
 
Those characters are actually in the code but I have no idea why they have not been recognized.

I sent it to my Dropbox folder as a text file and it worked fine, no formatting issues at all.
have to think it's an issue in the mail transfer/conversion.
