    we have the Roland CAMM-1 Servo desktop vinyl cutter. It has a knife which is mounted on a CNC arrangement for linear motion. The knife can rotate on its axis and the bed has rollers for moving the sheet back and forth. The sheet is cut by moving the knife over it. We can set the cutting velocity and cutting force depending on the material of the sheet we are cutting.

    @sreu13 I edited comment please read that again. Most probably it will not effect your file system. In some scenarios it can create worse effect.

    @sreu13
    Ensure that you are installed tensorflow 1.x since screenshot of your code shows something like
    from keras.layers.convolution import covolution2D
    It is not correct in case for tensorflow 2.0 since keras api is part of tensorflow itself.

    Another thing is try to expand your file system. It should be do with your own risk.

    sudo raspi-config Navigate to Advanced options Select advanced options and hit enter(I believes tab key is useful here) Choose Expand File System and hit enter finish. Then your pi may prompt to reboot. If it didn't run. Execute
    sudo reboot Then execute following commands one by one: $ sudo apt-get purge wolfram-engine $ sudo apt-get purge libreoffice* $ sudo apt-get clean $ sudo apt-get autoremove Then increase swap memory by editing following file swapfile:
    $ sudo nano /etc/dphys-swapfile It will open nano editor. Navigate to variable CONF_SWAPSIZE=100

    It indicates your current swap is only 100mb.
    So you just have to increase by commenting down this line and increase to appropriate value something like shown below for 2GB swap:

    #CONF_SWAPSIZE=100 CONF_SWAPSIZE=2048 Save the file and exit nano editor. sudo reboot

    I believes if it did not helped you, you have to think about MOVIDIUS or NVIDIA Jetson nano etc.
