So, I have been fighting with my new X Carve not squaring up properly. Even with gauge blocks in place then turning the machine on it would roll back slightly on one side and screw me. So I started messing around and loosened all 4 end plates on the the y axis and loosened all v wheels and tried again thinking my base might be out of square some where. That wasn’t it, then I took a square and held it to the Y plate and Wide Maker Slide, sure enough it is not square at all. The left side about 12 inches out has a gap of about an 1/8 of an inch on the square and the right side almost a 1/4. Is the maker slide just cut bad ? or is there some adjustment I am missing. Any tips to remedying this would be greatly appreciated.
That sounds like a call to the Inventables support team, the cuts shouldn’t be that bad (out of square)
Ok so I basically pulled the machine apart and am rebuilding alot of it, my base was off a little so i am correcting that, but the wide maker slide is definitively cut bad, so i am going to look into modifying or shimming it to correct proportions.
Inventables will certainly take care of an issue like that. CS is top notch.
Yeah after looking at it and scratching me head, I am just going to call them tomorrow and see if I can get a replacement. Thanks again everyone.
