I’ve been running the Low Rider all day yesterday and most of this morning. And I either just noticed the problem or something happened. I’m still learning some of the CNC stuff so just let me know if it is a simple user error. For starts here are the specs of my machine.
Mini Rambo board with the basic firmware
5’x10’ table with DWP611 Dewalt router
I use ESTCAM for writing my G Code and Repetier Host ran from my laptop hooked up USB to the board to run the program.
The problem I’m having is that I’m trying to cut out a part from 1/2" thick blonde wood and my Z axis is getting off. I just had to Emergency stop the Low Rider by pulling all the power because it was about to crash itself. I was running a program with a 1/4" bit set to
z+ = 1.5mm
a(z+) = 90
f(xy) = 20
f(z) = 1.5
s = 24000
The program had ran for approximately 10 minuets then I noticed that the Z axis was extremely off(about 3/4") when I heard the router having problems cutting because it was plunging to deep. I leveled the z axis by hand before I started.
Any advice is greatly appreciated and just ask if I left out an important pieces of info.
