I probably have another dumb question for the forum, but I would really appreciate some input. I am running Easel Pro on a MillRight CarveKing (thanks for updating the “other” supported machines). My machine crashed when I was trying a trial cut on some brass. Another story. Anyway I powered down the machine and when I powered it back up again and ran the homing command at first the z axis switch was recognized but neither the x or y switches were. I thought maybe I had damaged them somehow and, indeed, the x axis switch had a broken lead but the y axis leads were fine.
I fixed the broken lead and checked that the switches themselves were ok with a multimeter. All checked out fine. I checked to see if a connection to the CNC board had come lose but that was fine. So then I thought maybe I had screwed up the g-code somehow on the arduino. I took the opportunity to load up the most recent grbl code onto the UNO and rebooted Easel. Now when I ran the homing command the z axis limit switch was no longer recognized. I rebooted everything again and decided to look at machine inspector. When I manually trip the X and Y limit switches they show up on the interface (green) but the z axis is still not recognized.
Does anyone have the faintest idea what I have done??? And any suggestions for a remedy. I have spent nearly 2 days trying to troubleshoot this as best I can but I’m completely stumped.
