Can I go back at some point and start over?
« on: May 26, 2016, 10:16:45 AM »
Hey Guys,
Have been using my cnc foam cutter for almost 6 months now.
Unfortunately came to a problem - the wire tore and I am in the middle of a cutting job.
Can I move the DROs (the arms) backward to some positions and after I replace the wire to start over from there?

Thank You!

Ok Sorry for that topic, but I prefer to tell how I managed to fix the problem, to bother someone to try to help me.
So, I noticed the torn wire some seconds after.
1. Went to the program that generates the G-Code (in my case Dev Foam Pro) and looked at the coordinates where the DROs were (did this to be sure that I am looking same types of digits), they were the same, so
2. Checked in DevFoam where I should start from and
3. found from which line I should start over (in my case 331),
4. moved the DROs were they should be, according to Dev Foam, ofcourse I started from the begging of a line.
Everything worked perfectly.
