I am finally past calibration and into a solid operational mode. I am cutting the sample design from Frontier Design (beautiful stuff!) and making decent progress - except for this recurring z-axis anomaly:
Twice now I have had the z-axis spontaneously plunge to it’s stops and beyond (skipping the belt) until I hit stop. As you can see form the photo above, My gcode says -9, but my slid shows 14.20 - when in fact it has plunged to it’s stops, with no sign of it stopping. I think this is happening at the end of
The possible issues I can contemplate, in no particular order:
- An issue with the GCode
- A bug in webcontrol
- Some kind of interference with the power / z-axis cables
- Interference on my z cable pin connection (it’s a little sketchy)
Would anyone have any clues to contribute?
