I’ve been using my X-Carve intermittently over the past few years for small projects with no problems. I started cutting a new project yesterday and had some problems with the Z axis motor. This turned out to be the result of a loose wire connection. After I tightened the connection, everything worked well. Today, I started cutting again and the Z axis motor would sometimes work fine and other times would make an unpleasant noise and would not travel the distance that it should. See Video.
I’m jogging the Z axis is .1 increments.
This generally happens at the bottom and at the top of the travel. I checked connections and there isn’t anything that’s loose.
I haven’t tried adjusting the pots on the Shield yet.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
