XL new assembled shows Error


I got two errors on my XL

The Y axis moved just 50% of the travel stopped and say: Hit home switch
No I checked the GRBL Message and found out that the $14 which should be on 1
is not present. I set $14=1 since then a GRBL Error said : setting disabled. Even I
put $14=0 in , nothing happen. …can some body help?


In addition to Grbl, Carbide Motion has additional preferences which include some for homing. Instructions for all this are here: http://docs.carbide3d.com/article/67-shapeoko-3-limit-switch-installation

It sounds as if you might have steps set to half or something?

Please try re-setting your Grbl to its defaults: http://docs.carbide3d.com/article/38-shapeoko-3-default-grbl-settings

Then re-apply the homing switch configuration from the first link, then incrementally try things out. Things to test for:

  • machine movement — ensure that X- is to the left (from the front of the machine), Y- is towards the back of the machine, and Z- is down.
  • homing switches — make certain that the correct switch is plugged into the corresponding socket — check that each switch functions properly
  • wiring — ensure that everything is properly plugged in so as to not have any intermittent faults

Hopefully that will get things moving and functioning properly — if not, let us know at support@carbide3d.com and someone who actually understands the electronics will get back to you (I just parrot stuff by rote and try to work stuff out by logic and my limited understanding / memory of the system — still learning the deep details).
