Hey folks, I have an ongoing chain skipping problem. Mainly near the top of the sheet. Its very consistent, if I loop back to the same few lines of gcode it will happen in the same spot everytime. Im sure alot of my problems will be solved by modifying my frame (extending top beam outwards & making a better chain guide) and upgrading to v 1.00 of software and firmware. I would like to finish my current cut project before doing more mods/updates.
I added a counterweight to the chain slack sprocket which I think causes more tension on the motor sprocket, and that has resolved 80% of my chain skipping, I can loop back to the same gcode spots and it will no longer skip. Has anyone experimented with this before? I haven’t been able to find anything in the forum.
