I am trying to cut some expanded PVC and my machine keeps stopping mid-project. I using UGS to send the g-Code. I have tried two different computers and both did the same thing, UGS locks up. I tried cutting the part “in the air,” and it did fine.
The cutting from the PVC seem to be generating great deal of static electricity. I can actually hear the hose on my dust collector “pop and crack” as the cutting are passing through. I am guessing that the electrical field is causing some type of interference in the system.
Has anyone experienced this before? And, what did you do to fix it?
I am going to try to figure out some way to ground the machine and hopefully dissipate the static charge.
Any help would be appreciated.
