I’m wondering if anyone has found a way to resume their cuts after either a connection loss to the control board or losing power to the computer running the software?
Unfortunately, I’m using a pretty low-end, old computer that has no charge left on the battery, so if I have any power surge, I lose power to my computer, router and control board.
I’m OK dealing with this low-end tech I have, but have lost my cuts twice this weekend because I haven’t figured out a way to resume the cute after either of these two has occurred.
Here’s a recent post on the subject…
To;dr - after losing power, ‘not a clean recovery’.
might want to spend $50 on a UPS back up system? or just buy a battery for the laptop. they are pretty cheap to fix if you are handy are ripping apart batteries.
This is one of my biggest frustrations currently. The heartache and fear of a lost connection and how much havoc it can create on a cut that has taken some time to create and potentially wasted material. I’ve asked the question before and got good answers but still don’t understand how a lost connection needs to reset your calibration. I’ll have to go back and review the responses.
Also, the instability of going to a specific line of g-code to start where you left off or pausing for a moment, fixing something, then wanting to redo the past 5 lines isn’t as intuitive nor stable as one might hope.
If these two things were fixed or improved, it would make mistakes and errors far more salvageable.
Yeah - I’ll probably do this for the time being - was just hoping the positioning was stored somewhere locally on the computer so that I can pull it back up. Would be handy if the computer ended up crashing for any reason also.
