My Shapeoko Pro is down more than it is working…
I purchased my Shapeoko Pro XL in April and have two bouts of X-Axis stutter. The first took me 3 weeks to resolve and required a new processor and the second is underway where I have an intermittent X-Axis stutter. I say intermittent but I have lost three projects now because my CNC acts as if all is well only to develop the stutter, knocking X off its accurate tracking, and then carving along the incorrect location.
It’s heartbreaking because I am trying to make money and am wasting so much time troubleshooting it waiting for replacement parts.
Is anyone else having this issue?
Causes of such problems include:
- electronics, either the controller, or wiring/connectors
- linear axis/rail issues — usually this is a lack of lubrication, or dust getting packed into the bearing blocks
- the pulley/belts — either loose/missing set screws, loose hardware holding the motor in place, or insufficient belt tension
Please let us know what you find out at email@example.com and we will do our best to work through these issues with you as quickly as may be.
I have the exact same problem with my xxl pro.Went through machine many many times, wiring, mechanical, pulley etc…I finally replaced the x axis motor. So far so good. cost me lots of $$$$$$ in scrapped wood glue ups.
