anyone ever have their maching stop mid carve thinking it was finished?
I try and run a job and the machine stops just a minute or two into the job (33 minute job) and the completion window pops up…like it thinks it has finished. If I run the carve preview in both vectric and easel, it previews a complete carve.
recalculated/rebuilt the toolpaths
2.restarted the x-carve and the computer
resent it to the machine several times
tried different jobs I know worked previous to today
…still the machine carves just a minute or two and then stops like it has finished.
Anyone had this happen or have any ideas?
Don’t know if you’ve fixed your problem yet. But when I first set up my XCarve I was using an old laptop and it did the same thing that you’re describing. I purchased a new laptop and problem solved. The USB port wasn’t sufficient for the machine.
Howdy…same problem… but my cable works fine with my other laptop… only stops when I am using my older Dell. I had it wiped… and windows 7 installed. The Dell has a SSD and 4 gigs of ram. It is all cleaned up… checked to make sure the sleep mode is off… but it is still doing it. How does a powered USB hub work… and how can this help.
