So I’ve been trying to get the x carve to do what I want it to do without much success. I’ve been trouble shooting for a couple of hours, bolt turn, screw turn, try this out, try that. I’m just making thinks work less well.
I’m using the birch ply wood setting in easel.
Cutting birch ply wood.
Yeah, either too tight or too loose. I’m not exactly sure what the end result of those belts are supposed to be. A guitar string? That’s how I figure I have them. I have them at my approximation of an A string.
I wish I could read your reply while I’m responding to it…
Glad to help, just let us know if you run into any problems. Lots of us here had a steep learning curve, so if you have difficulty with something there’s probably someone here that has figured out a way to get past it.
I had circles like that when the pulley on the x axis had a loose grub screw. I saw it by setting the jog step size to .5 mm and then watching the pulley and belt while I jogged it back and forth. When I reversed direction, I would hear the motor turn, but pulley and belt didn’t.
I had to pull the Z motor off to get at the pulley, rotate it so that a grub screw faced a flat on the shaft, then tighten the snot out of it. Had good circles afterwards.
