Is there something else that must be done to calibrate the xcarve after installing the $500 upgrade? I was going to level my waste board and my router plowed into it. I used the z probe and was taking less than an 1/8 of an inch as a test. There were no other objects that would have made it run that deep. I am stumped and now have to get another waste board.
Take a look at the last step in the instructions… link below… you’ll want to verify up is up and down is down, of those are revised then change the $3 per the instruction. (Don’t just change the value as many have reported not needing to… it all has to do with internal stepper motor wiring being inconsistent)
And you also need to adjust the $102 to the value in the instructions :
And there’s one more thing you might want to keep in the back of your mind in case you ever have to perform the machine setup after this upgrade.
I did everything just now that was listed except invert the z travel through GRBL. I switched the wiring on the controller and the travel is correct. Will this be a problem or should I switch them back and make the changes to GRBL?
Switching the wirings are just fine. That will not cause a problem
If you have future issues and call in for support it might confuse someone, but it’s operationally a perfectly fine solution.
