Suggested upgrade pause project and raise spindle

Curious if you are ever going to do an upgrade so if my bit breaks mid project I could simply pause the project raise the spindle, change the bit, lower the spindle and just continue on with my project. I’ve at a couple projects where my bit broke and the project was almost complete. Currently the only way I can finish the project is to restart from the beginning, put everything up at 200% until just before the bit broke. Two of those projects were over 4 hours long with about half hour left to carve…please help as this is a waste of time. PS: Don’t know enough to delete the part of the project that was already carved. Thanks.

yeah, that is the other option, to export the gcode and delete the complete parts… or cover them with a 0 depth shape in easel if you want the simple method since gcode editing is out of reach right now.

I re-categorized your post into Easel>Feature Requests since this would be a function of easel that you’re asking for :wink:

I would love to see this feature too. It is frustrating to be almost done when a bit breaks. There is no way to raise and lower the spindle. This would be a great upgrade!!

You’d need to stop the job anyway in this case. That said, what happens when you pause using the hardware button on the X controller? Doesn’t it raise?
