Maybe one of the CNC experts will speak to this question, but I think the connector was likely not firmly seated long ago and eventually vibrated out. If it is now firmly connected (you can't wiggle...

Possible that one stepper is not moving? That could look like each side is moving in the opposite direction. A loose connection could cause one stepper to stop moving and that's a good first step --...

Not that I'm aware of, but a manual version of this is workable. Just add a small curved vector to the start and end of the offending vector and you're in business. Another approach is to explicitly...

Thanks for sharing the workaround for the 'unsigned' issue. I upgraded to Windows10 a year ago and didn't bump into any problems. I did ask CAMaster if there were any issues before the Windows10...

You're not expected too much from the machine.

i have one, but rarely use it. It's useful when, for whatever reason, there is a need to put a nail in a spot where a tool may cut. It's never my first choice for material holding.

Any chance you first created/saved the tool paths at 90 degrees then changed to 0 degrees but forgot to save the new .tap file out? Don't ask me how I know this is an easy error to make.

Z0 is set to material top in the tap file while you state that Z0 is set to the table top. They need to be the same. Most people in this group set the Z0 to the table top in Aspire.

A Stinger II with Recoil is 77"x79". Don't add another 11".

You can place the back very near a wall and the left side within about 12" of a wall. You'll need people space on the other 2 sides.
