Hey all! hope the machining has been going awesome!
We’ve had our machine for a good while now, we did the cheap z-axis fix, and rode it till we could.
We now have the metal maslow sled, dedicated z-axis, and upgraded motor installed.
At first try, it went comically fast and far…
we’ve managed to change encoder settings to regulate the speed, however we are at a TOTAL loss when it comes to pitch…
We’ve read over thread after thread about people and how they’ve mathed out the pitch and all that.
so far if we tell it go up a mm it’ll go up about half an inch, or further.
The cable it came with did have one of the cables that attaches to the plastic bit completely out, so we just nudged it back into it’s socket and didn’t think about it. Some threads do mention cable issues affecting the z-axis. (we’re thinking of splicing it with the old cable if that’s the problem)
Any and all help is greatly appreciated, I’ll be ready to reply to any questions about the setup to get to the root of the problem. Currently running webcontrol, holey calibration on an rp4 with wired ethernet, weighted simple system, and orange rigid router.
