X Axis not moving
« on: January 14, 2019, 08:09:10 AM »
Hi guys

Just bought a new 50*65 cm Mini 3000MW. Assembly was fine and laser and Y-axis working fine. However the x-axis is not moving. I removed it from the shaft and it moves but not properly. I have attached a video for reference.

Have i handled the X axis wrongly and it has gone bad or is there anything else. Would really appreciate the help.

The stepper motor drivers (plugin boards on the controller) have current limiting adjustment pots. If they are too low the motors will not move or stutter. If they re set too high the motors will generate excessive heat. You measure the voltage from the case of the trip pot to GND. Typical values are 0.4 for the X and 0.8 for the Y.
