Hey folks. Got myself a computer to connect to my laser cutter, so I could finally use the rotary correctly.
I’ve gone and set it up, and at the beggining it worked-ish. At start, I had wrong paramteres on how big my machine was set, but I fixed that and went on “exploring.” While playing around with different controls on the PC in lightburn, I pressed the home button. That made my machine go hard for the zero of the x-axis, and it started making a loud sound - it was trying to pass the limiter and the end of the gantry. I pressed the emergency brake, reset the machine, and it reset ok, however the speed for both x-axis and y-axis movements have decreased significantly.
While the x-axis functions fine as far as I can tell (when I manually try to move it along the x-axis, it speeds up to what it always was) the y-axis is slow, and will only go maybe a third of the way it should, then stop. The controller diagnosis will not show it’s hitting a limit switch, but the thing will not move beyond a certain point. If I reset the machine and cancel the limit search at the beggining, I can move it another distance, as it was from the very top of the machine, to the new imaginary limit.
I would appreciate any help greatly.
