I like to pause and resume cuts if something isnt feeling right.
Today I paused because of a warp in wood and to change bits, and afterwards none of my motors would respond. I ended up unplugging all cables. Pushing all chips in on board. restarted board, and reattached all cables rebooted laptop and it finally worked.
I have not had it happen again. I dont know what went wrong. Ill repost if it happens again.
i did finish a quick little sign though in crappy luan wannabe board. Seriously stuff is garbage. But its what I had. it was protoype for a dnd game screen panel for my daughter.
