Thanks for replying
When it failed to complete the job, I was able to resend and finish it a second time (I was using Acrylic from Home Depot which didn’t cut through and had to both resend the job and slow it down to cut through) and I did one more smaller job after that. I’d almost swear it doesn’t store the job locally due to what I experienced but what you’re saying and what others have posted (and I know you’re correct) just has me scratching my head wondering what glitched?
but it should finish anyway. So I wonder what happened. Power sag maybe? Do you know the time of that failure to help support find it in the logs?
Maybe if I’d left it untouched it would have resumed on its own in time? I noticed when it started that first job, the app showed me my estimated time and never counted down. The software was stuck at the 4minuteXseconds, and the head of the laser returned to it’s start position after completing about 80% of the job. The second time I ran the job the timer counted down as normal and completed 100%. I ran this job around 4am-ish Thursday morning. So, the app had glitched as well.
BTW that is normal. When you are connected to the GF in setup mode, you are only connected to it and neither your computer nor the GF can reach the internet.
I wasn’t sure if I even needed to retry this step but had figured “why not?”. But on the setup GF app screen it keeps cycling “waiting to connect” so even though my laptop (in Chrome) said I was connected, I did not get to the “Huzzah!” message (do you even get that if you’ve previously done so? I would assume so?)
The rest sounds like problems with the GF being unable to maintain a solid wifi connection with the router.
I’m leaning towards this as well, because otherwise there’s no indication the head is connecting to the cloud. Oddly, I have full bars next to my GF on my wifi and I have a wifi extender as well.
I do live in an apartment and wonder if there might be interference somewhere, and if that’s my problem, how in the world can I overcome that? Precisely why we need an Ethernet port on this multi-thousand dollar machine. I don’t know where else to turn at this point, aside from one more attempt in the dead of night when hopefully the neighbors don’t have too many devices active? Assuming that’s even the issue.
