Just got my xcarve set up and running last week! (Got the recommended kit-1000mm rails, nema23, acme screw, dwp611, arduino, motor shield. )
1st run, a 1-pass engraving went great.
2nd run, cutting a 10"x 13" shape (w rounded edges, simple notching) on recommended cut rates, was also successful!
At this point, foolishly perhaps, I wasn’t satisfied w the speed. (cutting the 10x13 piece out of 5/8 plywood took 40ish min)
So I tried again at 60ipm feedrate, .08" depth per pass. (12 min estimated cut time). On the last pass, y-axis slipped about .25" short, unsuccessful. I adjusted the potentiometers at this time (default settings before this), and tried a few more times unsuccessfully, also fiddled w accentric nuts.
Now when i run the machine, even slowly on recommended cutting settings, both x and y axis sometimes slips! on the 2nd or 3rd pass!!! No cuts successful out of 6.
Unfortunately I did not mark the default settings on the potentiometers.
Can someone share a image of the motor shield w potentiometers set at default? I’d like to set the potentiometers on my shield back to their default positions…
thanks a lot!
