I must say that my patience is at the limit
I’m disappointed in Inventables because I have not received help
my x-axis does not want to go as I tell it to do,
that is to say, when I try to run it with the arrows in the Easel
it´s only moves back and forth approximately 1-1.5mm
back and forth, back and forth, back and forth.
I have tried to adjust the pots , but it has not effect
So I start to think that it is thrown out of money. And if I do not get any help
with this, I can not recommend x-carve to my friends
here in Sweden
But I still hope hope for help
Please, please please

Check your wiring…it sounds like you didn’t swap the wires on the Y-Axis motors.
Does it move in any direction when the keys are pressed?
The X axis is the one that moves the spindle left and right. Is that the axis you are having trouble with?
The Y axis moves the spindle forward and back. Does this axis work properly?
The Z axis moves the spindle up and down. Does this axis work properly?
I checked the cables couple of days ago, and in my opinion they was ok
the axis trying to move but it only moves 1-1.5 mm forward and back.
The y-axis and the z-axis is moving ok
So moving the gantry forward and back? That is the Y-Axis motors. The wires on one side should be swapped otherwise the two motors are fighting each other and they do exactly what you are describing. Can you post a picture of the two motor connections…the left side and the right side as you are facing the front of the machine.
The Y-axis and the Z-axis moves ok
but not the x-axis
the axis that goes from left to right over the workspace
The y-axis goes forward and back
and the z-axis going up and down
Am I wrong ?
It´s the X-axis
The Y and Z-axis work fine so far…
ok, the X-Axis…with the machine powered off, does the axis freely move left to right?
Your wiring for the X-Axis looks like the attached picture?
Hang on, I´ll go out to my workshop for a minute and try to get a picture
About to go to a meeting…sorry, I am at work…I’ll be back later, but maybe someone else can pick up from here…
At the controller (either X-controller or gShield or other) swap the wires between the X axis and the Y axis for a test.
Connect the wire from the X axis motor to the Y axis driver at the controller.
Connect the wire from the Y axis motor to the X axis driver at the controller.
Does your problem stay the same, or does the problem move to the Y axis?
Tell me what´s the driver at the controller
I´m sorry to be an newbe here
It seems you didn’t swap one wire. After reading the other issues you had, why you didn’t ordered the Carvey?
X-Carve is a kit and it needs some minimal skills (like knowing how to read) and patience, Inventables has none to do with that part. I have assembled several similar kits and the one from Inventables is superb.

The instructions show them to the z-axis must
Is it wrong ?
