I do have the same problem. Could it be linked to the OS of the computer? I use OSX.
Yes, of course, that the idee by using a web browser, to be independant from any OS. It also means that all users should be impacted by this problem. Is it possible to downgrade?
I've tried to force an update through the menu Settings/Software Update and the Advanced Options at the bottom of the page.
I've waited. When finished and the system rebooted, I didn't close the current window, but opened another one. This other one works fine and I don't have any connection problem.
I hope it would also work for you.
So after today evenings update I'm in trouble as well. Seems like Mr Beam cannot slice anymore. Also pictures I engraved yesterday can not be sliced today. It always shows the following message right after starting slicing process:
Slicing failed -or- Slicing fehlgeschlagen
Please do a "hard reload" of the Mr Beam interface in your browser by pressing SHIFT + F5 (on Mac: cmd + shift + r ). This will reload the browser page. Apparently the browser still has the old page cached and this forces the browser to reload it completely.
If this doesn't help, please submit us a ticket and attach your design file.
Thank you Frans for sharing my answer about the "avrdude returned code 127" here in the forum. This is really helpful for us.
Hi Andy, thanks for the help. The "hard reload" worked out.
After this reload I also got the update news, which didn't show up by ordinary restarts. :-)
