OK, first, thanks to everyone who helped in the last thread I posted. Since then, I’ve set up chain guides, and I’m using a top feed instead of a bottom feed. I’m using 2lb fishing weights as my counterweight, and motion seems smooth. I’ve also re-mounted the motors onto angle iron instead of screwed into wood. This is much more rigid and I can keep the sprockets very planar this way. Before, it was always a little off. I’ve also used the angle iron to extend the distance so I’m at 12’ between motors instead of 10. I’ve had to get longer chains, and I’ve also upgraded the Z-Azis and sled (Thanks @Metalmaslow).
Now, I’m trying to get webcontrol set up. I’ve gone through the setup steps, but I don’t see any place to set chain lengths. Here’s the error I’m getting.
Message: Unable to find valid machine position for chain lengths 1654.38, 1654.38 . Please set the chains to a known length (Actions -> Set Chain Lengths)
- I am using stock firmware
- I have set the chain length under Settings -> Advanced Settings. There is no option for (Actions -> Set Chain Lengths)
- My sled uses a ring
- Motors are mounted on the top of my beam, feeding the sled from the top.
- I’ve finished ‘Quick Configuration’, as well as ‘Set Sprockets & Chains’
Has anyone else seen this?
