Move the Z axis up by hand turning the pulley until you get the Z axis switch to trip.
Get a piece of wood or other material that is the same thickness (or just a little smaller) as the gap between the moving Z axis carriage and the Z axis motor mounting plate. We will use this material to stop the machine without breaking your switch if homing doesn’t work right.
Move the Z axis off the homing switch by hand.
Make sure you remembered to change $1 to 255 and $21 to 0
Holding the block in place to protect your switch, in PicSender, press the $H button and get ready for the E-stop if the homing sequence doesn’t work.
No, there is a gray button above the buttons for homing ($H) etc. that says “Grbl Set”. It’s a bit confusing, it doesn’t set the parameters, but it will cause them to be printed out in the message area.
I have to be away for about 1.5 hours, I’ll check back in when I return.
Got the new version installed, Went through everything we discussed. Homing worked perfect, gave the G28 and that moved to the default position, hit home and it homed again with no errors. But, I opened up Easel and tried to home from there, and the nice little chunk of Aluminum, that I made a stop out of did it’s job and prevented the switch from getting smashed, and got an Error saying there was an object in the way and that the homing failed.Next?
@LarryM Ok, so i am moving around in PS just fine (jogging) and set my G28. Works great! But, I tried to run job and I get soft limit alarms. I switched back to the current driver on Easel and it still tells me the homing failed
