wired usb-to-serial communication problem

Postby sandybeauty » Wed Mar 25, 2015 1:11 am

I designed a controller board. Using Sprinter firmware. The usb to serial chip is FT232. But the problem is the CreationWorkshop can't connect to it. So I changed another usb to serial chip (CP2102), Bing, connected.

My question is : CreationWorkshop will detect usb chip? Testing version is

With the latest version (, none of the chips can connect. Don't know why?

Creation Workshop can connect to any serial port as detected and set up by Windows. You may wish to double check you settings such as baud rate
