I have followed all instructions for setting up the default frame, firmware, electronics and router.
Using an original Maslow from 2018 with Z-axis and Ridgid R22002 Router:
While trying to run the Calibration, I am unable to control the Z-Axis.
The Z-Axis motor lowers (plunges) the router bit, but I cannot seem to raise it.
Then when I attempt to run the test cuts for calibration, the bit drags over the ply and scratches it.
I’ve tried everything I could think of in the Groundcontrol Z-Axis UI
“Raise” just lowers the sled (in the X-axis toward the floor) and does nothing with the Z-Axis.
I tried simply removing the Router from the housing to raise the router bit,
but that seems like an unnecessary workaround given that I’ve installed the Z-Axis …
How do I control the Z-Axis using GCode or Groundcontrol UI and specifically how do I raise the router bit so that it does not drag on the work surface?
- Original Maslow (kit from Bar & Hannah) with Z-Axis and ring (2018 model)
I am able to move the sled using the “Set Chain Length” UI so I think cables are connected correctly.
Closeup of Z-Axis: (which I believe is installed correctly …)
Thanks for your help!
