past ten days on these machines. None of the crashes was trapped volume
related. Nothing appeared to be wrong with the build files. Mysteriously,
the same files ran fine the second time. We have Buildstation software 1.8
on both the machines. Could it be due to lack of repeatability?

I had "phantom" blade crashes on my SLA-500/30 (no zephyr) until 3D replaced
the e-prom chip with a later version. Like yourself, I had blade crash
errors without any "physical" reason. I would retry the part and get good
builds. The problem got progressively worse until I figured it was a
machine problem and not a setup problem. I'm currently running
buildstation software.

Can't wait for our zephyr upgrade, it seems to address most of our greatest
build challenges (we'll see).
