I am wondering if any of you can help me… I am having issues with my Z-probe. It will work great the initial setup. When I change a bit or do a different cut and I want to use the z-probe for the new bit… It goes great through all of the ques for setup… shows the connection and will even light up the start probing button… but the z-axis will not move. Like I said it works great the first time and I have issues where I have to restart my x-controller and re-home the machine every time. Any help would be appreciated.
When I go to cut in Easel… My Z-probe will not go down when I try to z-probe to my piece of material. It will go through the entire cutting setup. It will show that the z-probe is touching the bit and will highlight the start probing button but when I hit the button it won’t do anything. I’m not losing connection because I can still move my z and y axis around. Only way to get it to probe is to restart the x-controller and re-home. then it will work for 1 cut again…
Could it be that my dewalt 611 maybe surging the power enough to lose connection to the x-controller for a slit second? It will still run through the job which is wierd. It has connection issues the second time around. but like I said I can still move the x-y axis until I hit the z-probe setting. And even the x-controller thinks it is still connected because it tries to let the z-axis down to touch the probe… .it just doesn’t move… very wierd problem to have.
I used to have big time disconnection problems to where it would stop in the middle of jobs all the time. Inventables sent me a new power board and that took care of the problem for a while… now I have this issue… Seems to always be something… I’ve had this issue for about 2-3 months.
