Tripped at the first hurdle

Started my K40/Mini Gerbil okay on my very first etching with the new board, but the burn stops after anything from 1:00 to 2:30 minutes, with the Console reporting “Stream completed in 2:18” (for example).

Incidentally, I have set the Origin at bottom left, as suggested, and the image prints upside down.

What setting(s) am I missing?


I changed to a higher quality USB cable and off she went. I plan a ceremonial burning of the old one.
