X axis moving slowly, Y and Z are fine [RESOLVED]

Hey all, I’m having a strange issue where my x axis is crawling along at maybe 10-15 ipm during cutting and jogging but y and z move just fine. I’ve checked for physical obstructions and reuploaded the firmware via easel. I will also check the terminal connections when I get back to my garage.

Any suggestion as to what might be going wrong?


What are your GRBL parameter values for $100, $110 and $120?

Open Easel, press CTRL+SHIFT+D and type “$$” followed by Enter in the Console window.
The GRBL parameters will be listed there.


$110 seems to have been the culprit. based on this post I bumped it up to 8000. X is no no longer moving at a snails pace. =)

Default for stock built X-carve:

$110=8000.000 (x max rate, mm/min)
