Introducing CarveWright Firmware, Release 3.103.

Some newer CarveWright ‘C’ series machines, as well as new cutmotors sold by LHR Technologies, may report a problem with the cutmotor when a project is started. The message, which reads, “Check Cut Motor”, is a result of a new manufacturing technique on the cutmotors which has made them more efficient than their predecessors.

This updated firmware modifies the cutmotor sensing algorithm to account for the efficiency of the new cutmotors.

The firmware is backwards compatible with Designer Basic, version 1.187, and can be used with it.
