Don't hit the X Karen!

Just a heads up, hitting the X (Cancel) on the HMI causes the controller to appear to reboot. You will lose your starting positions. I have had this happen both times I used the X Cancel option on the HMI.

I loaded a large Fusion file, started it, and hit cancel on the control box soon after. It sat there for 3 minutes then the spindle did not retract and it traveled toward home and snapped an expensive end mill. I learned not to press that button again!.. sigh…, then tried cancelling a different file from the Easel screen menu by hitting X to stop carve and it behaved properly.

Can one of you catch the log output for what happens when you hit that button? I suspect it’s tied to the abort pin which will simply reset the controller. You probably wanted to do a feedhold with parking (safety door…firmware change?) or a true E-Stop that will cut power.

I think my issue was too large a file for the web interface, was a 670 hole spoilboard. I can work on this after my current project is finished. Was wondering why the spindle does not pause with the machine when the pause button is pushed?
