UpdateViewPort was a fairly recent change in February of 2014, to make up for the RefreshView's inability to always refresh the screen properly.

If I recall correctly, version "i" predates that by about a year.  Perhaps the procedure was not supported back then.

The call is only done when colors are being changed for a better view.  Turn off that option, and see if it works properly.

In any case, I believe upgrading to a newer version of CamBam may solve the problem.

Thanks Lloyd, yes I think is something with the version, I try with the version 3.1.1.0 and works perfectly so I will stay with this by now until I upgrade the cambam.

Cheers

HEH!  Well, not the 'soft' version, no. 

We used to do that on large, high-speed 'chain' printers, back in my mainframe days of yore!  Jingle Bells, Mary Had a Little Lamb, etc, etc.


It wasn't all that good for them, and we got shut down on that fun by management -- but it was fun while it lasted.

Every stepper motor driven CNC router can play music :)

and you can download a program which converts a melody to G-code according to your machine specs :D
