Ok, so let me start off with my run information. I am running a new Pro XXL with the Carbide Compact Router (set at 3) that’s about a month old, with a newly downloaded Carbide Motion. I am running a simple flattening file with a #602E 1/4 McFly Surfacing Cutter and using a new (low-end) Lenovo laptop. I am flattening Spruce
So the problem I am having is that once I start the flattening file, it will run for about 20 to 30 minutes, then the Pro will lose connection with Carbide Motion and all motion stops. I set up the file again, and the results are the same.
I am a little lost as to why, I just finished a Tool and Bit organizer without any connection issues.
Any thoughts or help anyone can give?
Check your New Lenovo’s power settings.
Laptop might be going to sleep.
That’s what I initially thought. I went into the settings and adjusted my settings so that the laptop won’t time out. On my last go-round, I was watching my screen when the two disconnected.
Do you think its a laptop or a file issue?
It’s very unlikely to be a file issue. It’s most likely either the laptop, or a USB disconnect caused by static electricity.
What are you using for dust collection?
I am using a shop vac located under the CNC Table. Is the shop vac too close to the table?
I changed out my laptop and now I am presented with a new issue. After I initialize, and go to jog the Gantry on moves about a fraction of an inch in either X or Y axis. The Z axis is fine…
Did you re-send the configuration? Carbide calls it ‘sending’ the configuration, but it also sets up important values on the computer.
Ok, so I swapped out my laptop, then I re-sent the configuration and I moved my shop vac, and its running again. Thanks for all the help. Appreciate the help.
