I am trying to make a 13 hour burn, so I ran LB for about 2 hours, then hit the pause button. When I returned several hours later, I hit the Resume button, but nothing happened. I am assuming it is due to the USB power settings (Allow the computer to turn off to save power). I wasn’t aware of that setting before this happened, so I had the boxes ticked (they are unticked, now!).
I am running GBRL on a Eleksmaker board with a 10w diode laser on an open frame. I read about running the scan angle at 180 degrees (which is genius!), however, I run my machine without an absolute home. I begin all of my projects from “current position”.
I had the project on pause. I tried to reconnect with the laser by clicking “device” in the “Laser” tab. I chose my device, and then I heard the laser connect. At this point, the option to “RESUME” went away and it looks like it wants to start from scratch.
So, my problem is this: I don’t know if it is possible to resume from where the laser sits. I don’t know if it’s possible to get the laser to go back to EXACTLY where it started so I can use the 180 trick or to start over and burn that part of the project over.
I am really hoping that one of you “seasoned” guys have a really simple solution for me. I will leave everything as is until I hear from someone. Thanks!
