Re: GRBL Error: Cannot open port for Nomad

Yep, I know that pain. It is a tough problem to chase because statistically it will work fine some of the time. From what I gather, the biggest cause is the static noise. I think at the end of the day, the control board is not hardy enough against the static. The best success I have had is in coveri...

Re: GRBL Error: Cannot open port for Nomad

I had a ton of problems with connection dropping. Support has been trying with best of intentions to get things fixed and I expect that they will take very good care of you. They sent me some troubleshooting a while back, but I have been so busy that I have not had time to implement what they said y...

UGS Basic Help Needed

Hi, I am new to all of this but a fast learner. I am struggling to find basic reference material about how to use UGS. Is there a website that gives any in depth explanation of how the features work, or is it all buried in the forums? Any guidance would be appreciated. Thank you!

Re: Job stops before complete

I'm in the same boat as you, totally frustrated and just wanting to get this fixed at all costs. Did you find any solutions yet? I am searching exhaustively, but seems that no one with this problem has gotten it solved. I thought things were working okay when I moved my power supply to a different c...

Re: Carbide Motion Not Communicating

I have been looking deep on the forums here, and trying everything possible. I just moved the power for the CNC to a different circuit that only has a few things on it, and so far... so good... knock on wood. I'll post back on whether is screws up again or not. I had a lot of stuff on that circuit t...

I hit "pause" on the program, and it says "project running" but there is no movement of any motors. Program appears stalled. Running Windows 7, 64 b...

Carbide Motion Not Communicating

Hi, sometimes I am able to connect to the machine, set zero, jog the cutter, etc. and sometimes the software shows it is connected but does not actually move the machine. I can't tell what I am doing wrong. Is it a matter of turning things on in the correct order, allowing it more time, or something...
