Ok…Let me say this first. My machine was working just fine yesterday.
List of things that changed since it was working last:
1: Formatted laptop, removed Windows 10, installed Windows 7 Pro. This is due to Windows 10 being loaded on an older laptop and it bogged the system down for everything. Once I got to Easel I was able to carve without issues.
2: Windows 7 Pro installed, all windows updates applied
3: Installed FTDI device driver
4: Installed the latest Easel driver, 3.12 and tested
4: Installed Easel driver, 3.11 and tested
4: Installed Easel driver, 3.10 (which is what I had before the reformat) and tested
When open Easel and go to set up my machine I can move the X and Y axis just fine but the Z makes a little clicking sound but does not move at all. I have swapped the X and Z cables at the back of the X-Controller and then the Z moves fine using the X axis buttons. I believe I’ve read every other article I can find about this same issue and have tried everything I have read, but still nothing is working for me. Does anyone have any suggestions?
