[* icon_note] You should always hit the '''physical e-Stop''' before placing your hands in the machine. You only need to hit the '''software e-Stop '''feature if commands were sent to the machine while the ''physical button'' was compressed. This includes times you forget the physical button is still compressed when attempting to resume using BoXZY.
