Well got the 3d printing worked out pretty good, so decided to try out the dw660. Works great, this this cuts great for its weight and isn’t as loud as it would be, but still pretty loud.
Anyways, I guess I noticed this when I was printing as well, but it was never an issue during the prints. I did several 3-4 hour prints with no issue, except at the end of the print when it went to raise the nozzle i would hear a “bbbbzzzzz” and the axis would not raise. Worked fine during the prints though. Well about 99% of the time with the router attached it works great, but when running the router, eventually it will try to go up, think it did, then cut down deep into the work piece.
Axis turns really nice and smooth by hand, only takes one finger to spin it all the way up and all the way down. I can’t seem to recreate the issue with manual jogging, or with the machine doing a dry run. It only does it when its cutting, and of course usually at about 75% completion of the test, about 15 minutes. Still haven’t gotten through an entire test yet.
So what I’m getting at here, is could this be something that can be changed with the stepper motor settings? Step acceleration? I don’t really know what I’m talking about but I have been trying to do some more learning.
Also, with text it is backwards… so is that as easy as flipping one of the wire sets that hook to the ramps, either x or y?
Threw a pic in just for fun.
