Please all the nice forumists
I need a advice with my x-carve
Once I’ve started on a project,
after a while the z axis is strange
It goes up and down without any reason.
When I interrupted milling
and manually run the z axis, manual with the arrows
it goes up when I yell it to go down, and vice versa
And it’s just chopping up and down
I have a brand new x-controller installed a couple of weeks ago
btw I have checked all the wire, and they are tight fitting
Any one have an idea ?
Check your wiring again. Make sure the wires haven’t been pulled from the ferrels.
Do these up and down movements show up in the Easel preview?
Wiring issue. Either loose connection or damaged wire (not always obvious).
Does it effect the z axis if I jog the x axis and z axis manual
before I turn on the x-controller ?
It seems that the reason was the red cable
on the z axel stepper motor.
I have removed cable shoe and soldered the
end of the cable and then just screwed the cable again on the terminal
For the moment, the x-carve is running fine cross you fingers.
