Lately my machine chokes on pvc gcode after a few minutes

Postby kristenanne77 » Thu Nov 03, 2016 3:39 am

I have done several Photovcarves and I am experiencing trouble with this one. I actually did a few a couple of this particular one a few months ago (sucessfully) but went to do it today and the machine keeps stopping after about 15 minutes. I can't attach the pvc file as it is too large.
Any tips on what might be happening?

Thanks

How are you transferring the files? Are you using a thumb drive/memory stick/SD card? If so try a different one as it might be going bad.

Actually I have using dropbox to transfer Photovcarve and VCARVE designs to my "garage computer" which runs the cnc . Doing this for years with no problem until now. But you gave me an idea.
I just transferred the file via a thumb drive and it worked fine. I hope this problem with Dropbox doesn't continue as it is more convenient than using a thumb drive or emailing to transfer a file from one computer to another.

Thank
