Hello from seoul, korea
it’s my first time writing here on the forum and I am not quite experienced with Maslow operating so I am here to ask some advice from you guys, the Maslow community.
my brother and i have been slowly making my own DIY Maslow (I thought I missed the chance to buy the kit so I followed Bar’s ‘DIY Kit Mechanical Equivalent Parts’ list very religiously; Motors from the same company, 7ppr, 1:291 gear ratio, 12v)
Right now our Maslow is acting strangely related to calibration, and it would be awesome if I could get some help/advises.
First, I realized determining the length between two motors via calibration wasn’t working. We will get ~2300mm instead of the measured length of 3007mm. Therefore, we manually inputted the length value.
We performed ~20 calibration cuts to satisfy the tolerance limit to pass the calibration. However, even after the calibration, my Maslow is acting strangely.
My Maslow never goes to the center after the calibration or performing any cuts.
Realized Maslow wasn’t cutting either straight or being consistent. Therefore, we tried to do a performance check. Results are shown below. And, Maslow wasn’t going straight either as shown in the third photo.
Is there any way to fix or improve this?
