Machine keeps stopping mid project, T2 software
« on: December 15, 2020, 06:21:33 PM »
Let me start off by saying that I am very new to this ,  and still learning the lingo  and Technology ...
I am consistently getting an alarm 3 error during projects. I am using the t2 software on the Universal Engraver 15000. I was able to make it about eight hours into a 17 hour project. I am seeking any and all help to get this thing running to its full potential.  I am getting no support from the Universal Engraver company.

Alarm 3 means Grbl was reset while running G-code, this is usually due to a controller issue (firmware crashed due to bad memory) or electrical interference. It could also be due to power savings on your computer, since the Nano is powered by the USB port but that doesn't usually report an error it just stops.

I am no longer monitoring this forum so please send any support requests from my website or via e-mail. There's also an active T2Laser user support group on Facebook.
