I’m still really new to all this but I finally got up and running with my first project. Just a little way into my first cut UGS froze and disconnected. When I tried to reconnect I would get “serial port not found”. After closing and reopening/trying to connect multiple times I finally got back to work. This happened about 5 times, usually failing/disconnecting around the same point. I ran the same g code without cutting any wood a few times and it ran beginning to end with no issues. It was only when cutting a piece it would disconnect.
Anyway I got to looking around and found this thread:
About 3/4 of the way down someone suggests its a hardware issue, not to zip tie certain wires together and to try and shield electrical equipment. I also read in another thread static electricity from a shop vac hose might interfere.
I had my wires zip tied together so I separated them and I got through 1 piece without UGS disconnecting. It seemed like it might have worked or am I crazy? Has anyone else had this UGS disconnect issue?
