Hello to everyone
Hi I’ve just received my new Shapeoko Pro XXL its assembled and running I’m having a few issues mainly with what i feel is the X Axis. see list below
- upon start up initial Homing Z and X limit switch errors (found wires in 3 pin connectors pinned backwards, re-pin and test, solved issues)
- X axis losing approximately 1/4’’ every time rapid move. causing collision with stop brackets on right side X axis located near limit switch going to set bit zero. ( ran through setting up bit setter coordinates set at X = 0.000 Y = -853.000) when I install a bit and run through its process and I go to re set bit zero it works the first time, second time it will either come up short and ill have to turn the machine off so it doesn’t crash the bit into the bracket just beside the bit setter push button or it will go right past and crash up against the stop blocks on the X axis gantry. when the x axis moves in the X negative direction it will skip two to three times while in the rapid jogging speed.
what am I or have I done wrong?
I’ve checked tension about 10 times moving the tensioner one tooth of the belt in either direction shortening or lengthening, checked the alignment of the wheels to the drive cog 3 times measuring the distances with a caliper and changed the stepper motor with one of the y axis to see if this was the issue.
I’m out of ideas.
please help i’m starting to regret replacing my old but trust worthy unit
