well that was strange....

4 hours into an 8 hour print I check on my printer to find that whilst it was still 'operational',and still moving and still following a tool path, the tool path it was following was clearly not the tool path of the partfile it was supposed to be running, I watched it for a while following the hot end trying to picture what part it was actually 'making', but couldn't make it out, and didn't want to risk letting it run for much longer.

Fortunately it appears that when the fault occurred the extrusion also stopped, and the Z height had not changed, plus the error had occurred towards the end of a layer, this enabled me to edit the original part file and restart the job, didn't have to re home any of the axes or anything, which is fortunate because the part fills the bed, and the printer continued to the end.
