I already opened a ticket with Support to try and figure why the error happened, but that is not what I am asking here.
What I am asking here now, is how are you all going about recovering from this scenario? My HD print that was to take 8 hours, errored out at around 5 hours or so. Is there anyway to resume an engrave after an error where it left off? I got the generic error message restart glowforge or refresh your browser.
Here is what I decided to do for now. I went to graphic program and cropped the remaining portion to be printed, created a new design with the unfinished print still untouched in the GlowForge. Since the original was resized after I created the original design, I have to try and align and hope that the calibration done 2 days ago means it will line up close enough not to ruin the entire print. I tried to make sure I errored overlapping rather than risking any space between the appended images. If I’m lucky the darker portion of my print where it left off, no one will notice the lack of continuity that will likely occur. It says 2 1/2 hours left and I’m about to press the magical button and try not to get an un-magical error again.
Is there a better way next time this happens to try and recover? Thanks!
