Starting and stopping
« on: February 25, 2014, 05:33:29 PM »
Saw the machine do something today - 3 times - that I've not seen it do before. It might have and I missed it, but never caught it in the act.

I was running a file that I've  run before with no issues when suddenly everything stopped. Mach's screen looked normal, no messages, then after a few seconds it started back up and went on for a few minutes, then it stopped again. It started back up like nothing happened, and after another 30 minutes or so it did it again.

All three times after stopping it started back up with no ill effects to the piece being cut.

Anyone have an idea as to why it might stop/start like this?

I have never had anything like this happen but just as a guess I would suspect that Windows has an agenda and is performing another task and pausing Mach3 execution whilst it's task is completed.

Do you have any other software (other than Mach3) on your computer which may perhaps be running in the background ?

No other applications running.. It just stops, thinks for a couple seconds, then moves on.
