crashing the x axis

Recommended Posts

Did you push/move the head while it was paused?

If you abort, then it has to re-home again before it knows where it is.

Is the print head smashing loudly into the left wall? If so there's something wrong with the limit switch - it's probably not quite making contact. With power off try to push it so that you can hear the click of the limit switch when the head is all the way over to the left. You might have to bend the metal tab on the switch a little or maybe the fan shroud is bent and the fans are hitting the wall before the limit switch is hit.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
