BigFoot Beta troubleshooting

< Previous | List |

After installing BigFoot on your SmartBench if you face any issues then go through the following procedures: 


  • Go through the BigFoot beta installation guide article again thoroughly.

  • Make sure your power connections are correctly connected and are switched on.


Machine turned off

If your machine is showing symptoms for example, SmartBench is pausing a job or turning the spindle off. This is likely to be caused by static build up along the hose. Check both the ends of the hose are properly earthed. 

Please see more information about extraction static build up here

A: Z Head earthing connection

B: Extractor end hose connection
