Ok, new user here. I've ran a couple of jobs with success but now I can't get anything to run, even though I did (so I thought) everything the same. Saved the toolpath on my flash drive, loaded into machine, found the file but every time I try to run it all I get is the file size then a "1" in a highlighted area, but can't do anything beyond that other than just back out. I've tried running 3 different jobs, including one that was previously successful but to no avail Anyone have any ideas?
I have an 8 Pro+ running v-carve pro 9.517 with a rich auto 18 controller
Processing a File: Once the Origin is placed (all axes) and the RPM is set, the file can be selected and machining can begin. To ease the use of a USB flash drive (U-disk), once files are saved to the U-disk always select to Eject the drive to safely remove it from the computer. This will help ensure that the controller will recognize the U-disk when it is inserted. To begin (From the coordinate screen): 1- Press the Run/Pause/Delete button. 2- Select either the U-disk, Internal Memory a Recently used file (must be one current U-disk or in memory) a. Use the X+/- arrows to scroll up or down the list. b. Highlight the desired selection and press OK to select. 3- The files in that directory will be displayed. a. Display shows three files at a time. b. X+/- will scroll one item at a time. c. Y+/- will scroll one page at a time. d. Highlight the desired tool-path (.mmg filetype), press OK to select 4- The controller will display a set of working parameters for the file. a. Work Speed: Similar to feed-rate. This can be ignored as the controller is setup by default to take the feed-rate settings from the software. Settings can be changed allowing feed-rate to be set here. b. Fast Speed: Shuttle speed. This is the speed the machine will travel between cutting locations. c. Speed Scale: A percentage of the feed-rate. (See Speed Scale Adjustment) 5- Press OK to begin the tool-path operation. a. After a short count-down (4sec) during which the spindle will come up to speed, the file will begin. During file operation, the lower line of the screen will rotate through a list of information. Including; current g-code line (source number), operating time, speed (mm/min) and file name. Use the Mode button to manually scroll this list.
After you select the file (.mmg) with the RUN button, you should hit the yellow OK button, not the green RUN again.
