My name is Patrick and I am in need of some calibration help…… Here’s a little rundown of what has been done so far. I ordered the M2 a few months ago, right before the newer model came out. I had setup the original to almost completion when i realized there was already a newer model and MAKER MADE really stepped up and sent me th e updated parts, Thank you again.
I cut a few small signs and designs with my initial setup and stock frame., and after calibrating a few times i came in at around 1.8mm accuracy based on the calibration results. At that point I knew that I wanted to go to a 12ft top beam / all unistrut setup. About $600 later I had my new frame complete. Ive been on this site for a few months just researching everyone’s setups and ideas. Thank you to all that take the time to put into this community, Ive never been apart of something like this and its been quite the adventure so far. I have recordered the whole build and plan on making some nice you tube videos as well as a in-depth write up on here.
Here’s where the issue lies,
The newer kit came with a blue brain box, i call it that because it’s what my first “new” one said. (BRAINS)
When I attempt calibration i get to the Z axis part and set it to move 5mm for example up. The whole sled takes off to the top for the board and if I didn’t get to the power cords it would have ripped itself apart, motors, sprockets, chains, who knows.
I checked all wire connections multiple times, all is tight. Could this be an issue with the new Due board? The computer does not know that i have changed the frame or anything else yet, so i feel like I can eliminates that right off the bat. Any help will be greatly appreciated, i was hoping to have this bad boy cutting about 2 weeks ago at the latest.
Thank you in advance,
My cell is 864-314-0646 if anyone cares to reach out directly!!
