Step motor will not stop turning once plugged into USB port.
Loaded Firmware 1.26 and uploaded it to my Arduino. Then the motor started spinning. Tried flipping thru settings. Tried loading a G-code to see if it would stop. Tried running calibration. Tried manual control. If you are looking at the Z-axis port, with the white side up, the problem port is the left side. When I swapped the motor connections and the problem followed the cable. Sounds like a software problem or a step I missed along the way, which I find unlikely. I planned for a week, laid it out in my floor for three days begging for the weekend and now this.
This is my first foray into CNC machines. I’m having a lot of trouble translating my engineering and hand tool wood working knowledge into the software. I know what the tool can do but the software doesn’t want to listen.
I’m also having a conniption fit with Fusion 360–I’ve been using solidworks for years, so the transition is pretty smooth, but I can’t get fusion to make a toolpath for a 2d contour…just trying to cut the initial circle for the sled. I’m down to being happy with a push button controlled straight cut.
Thanks for the help in advance!
