How can I test for noise?
I am using an alligator clip on the cutter and an insulated plate.

I'm assuming that you have to answer the questions before it starts moving. The fact that it moves up 1", tell me that the macro is running correctly, as it's supposed to move up 1" after hitting the plate. So as I said yesterday, I think noise is triggering it.


Disconnect the wire with the clip from the breakout board, and replace it with a short wire, about 2" long.
Touching the wire to ground, should light the digitize LED. If it does, run the macro.

Touch the wire to ground to stop it. If this works, you have noise.
