XYZ Carve new build

Hi I’ve completed my XYZ build, following the instructions on the website. I’ve powered up and connected to my iMac running High Sierra 10.13.6 - updated Java, installed the driver for Cypress CP2102 Chipset and downloaded the UGS platform. USB into mac.

Fan is whirring and stepper motors hissing, but when I try to connect to /dev/tty.SLAB_USBtoUART on 115200 baud i get an error

Errot opening connection
(jssc.SerialPortException): Port name - /dev/tty.SLAB_USBtoUART; Method name openPort(); Exception type - Port not found

I’m a newby to fiddling with ports etc any help would be gratefully received…


please open a terminal and paste in the following line
ls /dev | grep SLAB
then hit enter.
Does it reply with the full name of the port “tty.SLAB_USBtoUART”?
If not then the driver may not have installed correctly or the USB is not connected to the machine
