Need help with getting Ecksbot printer going
November 14, 2017 05:51PM
I have an Ecksbot printer that I am trying to get running. I am currently have problems with the Z axis chattering under any fast speed. At 300% over ride in manual mode the motors chatter. I assume it is stall of some sort. When running a program the X and Y seem to run smooth but no such luck with Z.

There does not appear to be any binding and the carriage moves freely up and down the rails.

What speed should the Z axis be able to run it? Do I have bad motors? Bad amp?

Thanks

the z axis does not need to run at high speed one layer height every layer say .2mm try adjusting the current pot on z axis driver board if it runs good at 5mm/s that will be ok
