Re: Need some assistance

Josh, can you post those pictures to the forum? It would help a lot.

"Not coming out right" doesn't give us a lot to go on. What's wrong with them? If you run the same sequence again, do they come out deformed in an identical manner? Or is the deformation different each time?

Re: HD4 Pendant Frozen

I'm glad I missed the bullet on that one. Sure, it's a little annoying to dedicate a cheap computer to the CNC, but the only problems I every see with this setup on the forum is when the USB cable is bad. Pendants seem to have all sorts of problems.

Re: HD4 Pendant Frozen
