I found my wiring issue a while back and corrected it, however as Ryan said, your life will be much better without the endstops.
I really wanted them to work so that I could use a fixture and have the exact same X/Y/Z ZERO points, but I gave up on them. They would randomly make the machine loose connection to the board.
I would recommend…[Read more]
I am using Estlecam with my MPCNC and I have calibrated my X and Y directions, however, I can not get Z into calibration. When I move 1″ in Estlcam, my z axis moves about 5/8″.
I have tried adjusting my “Distance Per revolution” but my calculations (I dont have them in front of me) require me to set the Distance per revolution so small that I…[Read more]
I will have to review my wiring again closer and go over it with a continuity meter. After looking at the schematic, I think I may have connected Signal to 5v. I found this link: http://www.instructables.com/id/Configuring-Endstops-on-Ramps-14-with-Marlin-firmw/ that talks about the 3 pin end stops like I have and cautions against exactly what…[Read more]
I have a Arduino Mega and a Ramps 1.4 board I am using with my MPCNC. I was able to “Drive” it around the work surface with the Repetier firmware after flashing with Marlin per the MPCNC Tutorials, but the end stops would cause the board to reboot.
I recently flashed the board with Estlcam’s firmware to see if it got any better. I was able to…[Read more]
