I have times again a few problems with my X-Carve 1000 * 1000 mm.
The x-Carve stops milling sometimes, sometimes in the middle of the milling process, and simply stops. It can not be controlled anymore.
This has now happened several times. That is why I decided to transfer my workpieces directly via the G-Codesender. At the same time, I realized that the milling machine does not work exactly. And we are already on the second problem
The x, y, and z axes work differently.
X and Z axes work properly. But the Y-axis moves the triple section.
For example: if I give the y-axis the command 1 mm drive, it drives 3 mm.
The further I think that it moves also three times as fast.
In addition, I will insert the log of the last milling in which the milling machine has stopped.
Furthermore, the y-axis remains simply hanging on the command, for example 300 mm forward. However, this is not always the case.
I do not know where the mistakes lie.
The mistakes are guaranteed, but what mistakes are there?Fehlermeldung x-Carve.txt (4.0 KB)
I hope you can understand my problem or my english.
The current voltage of the y-axis I have already tried to change, unfortunately without success.
Sorry for my ignorance, hopefully they can help me.
1 - can be due to electronically noise / power drop-out of your USB-port.
Shielded USB cable with ferrit core might help. A powered USB-hub can also cover the symptoms. (The actual cause can be difficult to pin point
2 - Triple the steps per mm in GRBL, look up how to edit GRBL- settings using the Easel Machine Inspector (CTRL+SHIFT+D)
During initial machine setup, what kind of rod did you select for the Z-axis? (and which one you got if any?)
(I dont have xcarve btw)
Thank you in advance.
So now changed the settings. Unfortunately not quite with the desired success.
Enclosed 3 pictures with the changes.
Each time 1 mm step is given as command.
Picture 1.Machine is at zero / 0.
Figure 2. Path with setting 120
Figure 3. Path with original setting 40
If I do not answer later, I’ll do it tomorrow. With us it is already 22.48 pm. And I have to get up early tomorrow morning.
Thanks anyway for your help.
I have now dealt with the article.
Furthermore, I have made the Y-axis cable new.
I also tried to adjust the calibration of the motors (Y axis).
But either he does not move at all. Or he moves too fast and stops and grots in the middle.
I hang out a small video to understand the problem.
The command was 100 mm.
I hope you understand what I mean.
How can I reduce the speed of the Y axis?
I have no way out.
Thanks in advance for your help.
If the problem appear with a known good motor/axis then the error is most likely located to the gshield / motor driver.
Any distance error that is off by a factor of 2/4/8 etc is most likely a micro step issue.
100mm command => 400mm travel = a factor of 4 => GShield set to incorrect step setting?
