So I am going crazy trying to figure this one out. I just rebuilt my lowrider into the V2 because my Z axis motor was skipping when rising. Replaced that motor and rebuilt and now the opposite side motor is skipping when trying to rise. I replaced that motor also to make sure it wasn’t just a bad motor and it is still happening.
When the z-axis goes to rise, it just skips a little, and then keeps working, screwing up my layer height. I have all 84 oz.in motors on my ramps 1.4 and my drivers at .7v. Is that maybe the setup that is causing it? I was thinking maybe switch to a rambo mini might fix it or even changing to the 76 oz.in motors that everyone else is using.
I’ve read a little about the different things it could be. I’m thinking maybe its something to do with resistance in the wiring or something with long lengths of non-shielded wires. I’m a little in the dark about the “ghosts in the machine” so I’m not sure what to do.
My next step I guess is to remove wires from inside the stainless tubes to start to see if I can narrow it down. Does anyone have any pointers? Is it maybe the motors? the board? or the wiring?
