I’m now, just got my Maslow a week or so ago & started building the Temp frame over the weekend.
First, let me thank you for this great tool, kit, software, etc… It’s really impressive how much work you’ve put into it.
However, I had a lot of issues with the calibration process.
I had to re-run it at least 5-6 times before I could get it right & I had to skip some steps to even get there…
I’m on version 0.98 of the firmware & GC.
I’ll try to explain all of the issues here if I can remember them all.
Issue 1. At step 6, I got these measurements:
Motor Spacing: 2975mm
Sled Mount Spacing: 222mm
Vertical Offset: 367mm
I verified these measurements with my tape measure & they looked pretty accurate.
Then at step 7, I got this message (maybe it was after the chains measured out)
Issue 2. Also at step 7, the left & right chains measured out, then it says to re-attached the sled & hit next & it will re-center the sled. I attached the sled (it already looked pretty centered to me), then hit next & it spun out the chains all the way & dropped the sled on the ground. I had to re-attach the sled, assuming it was centered & hit the skip button, instead of the Next button to get past this step.
Issue 3. Also at step 7, it first spins out the left chain & then the right. There needs to be a pause or delay after it’s done with the left motor & before it starts the right motor. Because there’s not enough time for me to get from the left side to the right side before the chain starts to wrap its self up on the sprocket.
Issue 4. Also at step 7, I can’t remember if there’s a “Stop Motors” button or not at that step. It a panic I had a hard time finding it & sometimes they’re inconsistent. Some of them say “Stop” and some say “Stop Motors”. Since you’re working on colors, they should be big red bold & consistent.
Issue 5, can you speed up the motors for the calibration process? When you have to do it 5-6 times it takes hours.
I’m sure I had other issues, but can’t think of them now. I’ll let you know when I re-calibrate with my final frame.
Thanks for the help,
