Unexpected pausing during carves

Continuing the discussion from Stop easel reversing direction with tabs:

I don’t know if this is related, but I’m having some strange pausing happening. This just happens at the beginning, runs great, then a little while in, pauses again. The project completes just fine, just seems strange.

Edit: uploading a video from my phone doesn’t seem to be working. I’ll get it up here in a bit.

Strange, I thought it might be a buffering related issue, but I remembered there were some recent changes. Freaks me out every time it pauses! Thanks for the tip, I’ll have to restart once the project is complete.

Here’s the video of what was going on last night.

Try resetting your usb drivers.

That used to happen to me (not that long but intermittently for a few seconds throughout the cut) when I had a loose USB connection. Got a new laptop recently and it does not happen anymore.

There was a communication bug in the Easel Driver that we fixed a couple versions ago, that caused behavior similar to what you’re describing.

@Rusty @PhilJohnson—can you guys download Easel Driver 0.2.6 or 0.2.7 from http://easel.inventables.com/downloads and see if you still see any strange pausing behavior? Thanks!

I am having connection problem - my question is how to clear the cache without restarting windows?
If I my laptop (windows 7) hibernates then when I start Easel it will not communicate on com port, I always have to restart windows. it is annoying any hints please.

thanks I will try tomorrow.
