ShapeOko3 stopping mid-job (common issue for some). Proven to the router (Makita) and now trying a shield of Aluminium tape over control board,USB and Y-Stepper cables to stop them acting as Ariel. Also joined X, Y, Z metal (see white wire) as they aren’t electrically connected…and then grounded all to earth.
Is it going into alarm as if a limit was hit?
Not sure I understand the question? It’s basically shielding the ShapeOko and earthing to ground.
I have this problem with my Shapeoko 1. I find it happens far more frequently when I use dust collection, which I believe causes a build up of static electricity. I once witnessed the machine stop when a spark jumped from the spindle to the PVC dust collection duct.
there are issues with static electricity when using PVC for dust collection… my dust deputy came with some metal tape to try and ground it out, although I never put it on.
