Hi there again.
I have had an issue with projects stopping burning.
I have posted before and got some help - but it is still happening.
I have a C3D board, and LightBurn. Love them both.
I design on my iMac, transfer to an ASUS laptop PC for engraving.
I have replaced the USB cable with a newer and shorter one.
I have upped the x and y motor voltages 0.2 each via the SD card.
Tha latest is that I was advised that Windows (which I hate) will power down USB ports occasionally.
I have turned off all sleep/power saver functions.
I went to Device Manager, altered the ‘Power Management’ settings to stop it powering off the USB ports where I was able (there were two with long names which had no option for power management).
Now it seems better, but I still had a job stop along the way. I was burning 4 100 x 100mm slate tiles.
It cut out 3/4 way through the job.
If I restart - the burn is often WAY off from where it ought to be, and says the job is ‘out of bounds’!!!
I have to shut the programme down and restart to get the burns in the same place again, after sanding off the slate.
Please - help. It is driving me mad.
