I’ve been using my new machine for all of two days now. On day 1, everything was working as expected: Doing carves in Easel, all functionality seemed to be there.
At the end of the day I decided to be smart and play with chilipeppr, and in the process “homed” it into the wasteboard. Unplugged it & the arduino, restarted it, and it seemed to be working normal again.
Untill it goes to start the homing sequence in Easel in the “setup your machine” bit: In the past, worked fine. Now, it raises the Z axis half a turn, and stops, and just hangs forever. I can easily jog it up and down with no problem.
When a Carve… starts, and it ‘starts the homing cycle’ the same thing happens: Raises the Z about half a turn, stops, and says “there’s something blocking it”, but again, using the control panel on the side, I can jog it up and down with no issues.
I took the whole electronics bit apart, tightened all the screws, made sure there were no loose wires, but the same thing still happens.
Any thoughts as to why this would ‘just stop’ working?
