Some context: I just received the kit and finished building this out up to where I need to calibrate it so I can CNC the final sled.
I have hit a problem with Measuring the Motor Spacing where the measurement length between the motors do not line up with what I had expected.
First problem I encountered is that I assume that entering a number in the “Dist(MM):” will manually set the distance between the motors and let me proceed to the next step. After I typed my distance in millimeters, the only options given on the top buttons are “Back”, “Skip”, and “Quit”. See screenshot.
Since the next steps gave me Motor Distance Numbers that didn’t match with what I manually gave it, I tried to follow the instructions as given.
Which is my second problem: How do I measure the chain length after following the instructions? I hooked the left chain to the left and right motor sprockets as instructed, then pressed the “Pull Chain Tight and Measure” button. But I had to use the “Stop Motors” button because the L Bracket for the left motor was pulling up and becoming crooked. How do I proceed from there? All I still see on the top buttons are “Back”, “Skip”, and “Quit”.
Is the software suppose to detect when the chain is taut and measure itself? If not, where do I enter my measurements?
I hope my explanation is clear enough. I feel like I can really taste the first cutout with this!
