Hey Guys! Just finished installing the HDZ on a 1 year old machine and now cant get the initial homing completed. It appears the "Z" axis is homing down away from the limit switch and not upward towards its mounted position. I have tried to reverse the wires, as stated in previous threads, however i...

Re: Z Axis Shudders

Trouble shot and found the motor connection to the extension wiring had two bad terminals that were not seated. This was somehow making the motor pulse. Shapeoko customer service has already sent a new motor and connector. Hats off to William and Brandon for their quick response and troubleshooting,...

Re: XXL Blues

Update… So got the y1 and y2 switched, which solved the homing issue. Apparently they weren’t labeled correctly, but nothing blew up so that’s awesome!

Homing

Hello all,

So the sequence on my XXL is somehow jacked. Of the three distinct phases Z, X, Y respectfully, I only sometimes get Z to move, and X is moving to the left instead of to the right...the machine errors out before any Y movement. Please help.

XXL Blues

Good Morning all, So I received the much anticipated XXL yesterday and started assembly, however I already ran into a few issues. Wondering is anyone else had the issues and could walk me through it. 1) Squaring the machine-With all bolts loosened I cant keep the Y and Z V rollers to stay in contact...
