I am in the middle of converting a FSL 5th Gen Hobby to a Ruida 6445G controller with larger tube and PSU.
I have the linear motion of the X/Y axes working correctly and have replaced the optical endstops with reed switch magnetic endstop (the wiring for the original endstops was damaged, and I had these on hand).
LEDs 2 and 4 light up on the Ruida panel when the X+ and Y+ endstops are triggered, but the machine just keeps crashing into the endstops when a homing procedure is performed. The laser head is traveling in the correct direction (top right) when told to home.
When I manually jog the laser using Lightburn, I can trigger the endstop protection on both X and Y when hitting the endstops, making me hit “ESC” on the control panel to unlock motion again.
I have tried setting the Home Offset for both X and Y to 5mm, but the laser never seems to be backing off after triggering the limit switches.
Any suggestions on what to try next?
