    Good evening. I am trying to run my first job (Hello World). When I click on the start job button the gcode starts scrolling and the 3d image shows the job running but the router is not moving at all.

    Any suggestions? It is almost like it is in simulation mode.

    Thanks

    Looks like it had something to do with the IOT power strip. When I unplugged everything from it and plugged straight into power it worked..

    Make sure your controllers power supply is plugged into a wall socket (dont use the IOT relay to power it). Then make sure your router is plugged into one of the "normally off" sockets. Make sure your controller has a signal wire (and ground) going to the IOT's green port. You can test with the "Tool on" and "Tool off" icons in OB Control. If you're using a BlackBox, here's how it should be wired
