I’ve seen this topic discussed quite a bit on this forum but I feel that I have a rather peculiar case.
I am currently using a Shapeoko 3 XL and running gcode through cncjs to cut out skateboards for my company. Everything was going great until very recently, I’ve noticed now that my Shapeoko will just stop moving while processing the gcode.
Now in the beginning there was one spot where the router would stop consistently, I figured out that it had to do with an M6 tool change. Once I deleted that line in my gcode, the router worked perfectly. Now all of a sudden, after about 150 boards cut just fine, my router is stopping not only in that spot, but several other spots consistently.
I’ve read about static build up causing this for other people but here’s where it gets weird. When I run the gcode with the router on and no skateboard blank loaded, it cuts fine. It’s only when I introduce a skateboard that this issue arises. My bit doesn’t seem noticeably dull and I’ve been using the same feed speed forever with no issue so I don’t think it’s a rigidity issue.
Other than trying to ground and insulate everything I’m at a loss for what to try.
Any help would be appreciated!
