We have an OMIO X8 (USB). When running gCode things generally start off well but part way through a run, the machine begins to misbehave. Here are some examples:
While cutting out a part, the machine decided to, at depth wander straight across the stock damaging both the part being cut and the toolbit.
While drilling out some holes (there are many of them) the machine starts off very nicely then decides to put the next series of holes where it wants to put them, not where they are supposed to be.
Thankfully we are using plywood (prototypes for later cutting metal) but this erratic behaviour is problematic.
The attached desktop computer is running Windows 10, has a wifi card, a reasonable amount of RAM. We tried turning off the wifi thinking maybe there is some process or electromagnetic interference, made no difference - the next task exhibited the same behaviour but at a different place in the gCode.
Any suggestions on getting this promising machine to behave reliably is welcome.
Thank you for your expertise. We are rebuilding this year and hope to use both newly acquired 3D printing skills (with carbon fiber PETg) and CNC Routing during the 2023 FRC build season.
