I bought my kit from eastbaysource and have hooked up everything per instructions (over various posts). I got the chains moving (before connecting to sled) However, I am
- Unable to do any form of calibration fo rthe ZAxis
- Unable to move sled to a new Home position
When I open up ZAxis option in WebControl, and use the Up and down arrows (on the ZAxis control panel) It tries to move the sled instead and throws an error : "Unable to find valid machine position for chain lengths… "
So I disconnect the sled and then recalibrate the chains and reconnect the sled and try the above two steps. (ZAxis calibration/move to home). This throws the same error again.
I have checked for cable connections, they are firmly seated.

This is the final step I am trying to resolve so I can actually start using the Maslow CNC. the links and videos that other forum users and in general “Bosses” have been helpful. But do not talk to how to get the ZAxis stuff sorted out. Also this constant unable to find valid machine position bit.
Thanks very much for the help I am about to receive. It is very much appreciated.
