So, I got the frame up and popped a couple of spacers behind the workpiece and was excited to start calibrating!
When I went to the edges of the workpiece it was waaaaaaaay off. I plugged away at it and accidently changed a setting which went the machine up up up up. It bent the ring and pulled one side out of the sled.
Some creative bending an a re-screwing slightly offset from the damaged holes, and I’m back in action.
This time calibration went great and it was 8mm on the first shot!
The z kept getting soft limited, but I figured that out.
seems weird that the first steps need stock to be on there, but I gotta take it off for the Z to zero it on the waste board then put it back on again. Shrug.
I then went for the precision calibration. Pressed topleft and waited. the sled moved and as it got close to where it should go… The chain popped of the sprocket, the M2 hit the ground and the straps holding the 2 bricks broke.
I’ve found that when the machine is on the far left or right, the motor thats ‘pulling’ the machine starts clicking as if the chains not quite lined up. Is there a fix for this?
