I’ve been working on firmware to get holey to work with eastbay 1.5 boards within webcontrol. I have found or created a bug somehow and I’m not sure how to fix it and looking for some insight:
Scenario 1: calibration. first hole is located. router plunges and doesn’t retract and drags a slot across the entire board.
Scenario 2: made a 6" square with 4 plunged corners (Gcode below). Sled moves to lower left hole, plunges and then doesn’t retract all the way back to home. Once at home, it does not retract. When the home button is clicked, it retracts to its normal position and motors hum and it believes it is home. Using single z axis movements, the motor works fine. I have a metal maslow high speed z axis motor.
Has anyone else seen this? The motors don’t go crazy running until you turn them off, so this is progress with this shield, but in triangular calibration mode with this board, the z axis won’t plunge to cut the calibration pattern. In holey calibration mode, it doesn’t retract as it should. I’m unsure if it is the z axis motor and accompanying encoder setup or if it is the firmware not making the z move when it should for some reason.
Here are the z axis motor settings in webcontrol:
steps per rev: 4200
kp position z axis: 1300
ki position z axis: 0
kd position z axis: 34
kp velocity z axis: 5
ki velocity z axis: 0
kd velocity z axis: .28

any perspective would be appreciated! Thanks.
