I am getting sooooooooo close that I can taste wood chips!!!
But I am having a problem with a 200mm Z Axis problem. I am not Sure if its my SKR Pro? or if its Estlcam? or if its Repetier??? (Skip past all the junk until you get to my question. I wanted to make sure everyone knew what I have for a machine.)
Ok, so I am following all of the V1Engineering tutorials/forum pages/and any net info. I have a SKR Pro TMC2209 with the same steppers that V1 sells, on DOM pipe.
I have stock LowRider with endstops firmware, no changes. Endstops are connected with 3 wire endstop boards and hanging off the table. My settings are the ones I am following on the V1 site and I have the sweet V1 touch plate. Most important thing!!! I gave up trying to crimp my own wires!!! I bought extensions.
How do you change the Z Axis Height to not be 200mm when Zeroed? When I do a G28 x y z and Zero all my axis’s I get a X at 0, Y at 0, and Z at 200. My Lowrider can’t even do 200mm and it crashes into the table and pulls the sides off the table. (side note: I am going to have to buy new couplers as mine are turning into slinkies.) I tried moving my machine until the lead screws came out of the nuts (click click) but I can’t get it high enough for it to not crash into the table.
I did get it to work once when I was in the LCD settings and I zeroed the Z under advance or custom… Not sure who on V1 Forums wrote that. But as soon as I “restarted” the machine again, Z was at 200 on the LCD screen and on Repetiers move tab.
(Just to be clear! My machine is not at 200mm, it can’t ever get to 200mm as its not long enough. instead my machine is all over the place! where ever I unplug the power is where the new 0,0,200 will be when i plug it back in. Which means if the carriage is already touching the table when I unplug it, then it will try to go down 200 from there when I hit Play in Repetier.)
I am assuming this is a 3D printer thing. as my Prusa has a 210mm lead screw. However, I am working with as stock of a Lowrider as I can do!!!
My first goal is to get the “crown” image drawn. But its hard to do that when the sides are off the table.
Um, It just occurred to me that maybe it was meant to be 200mm off the table. So I can use the V1 touch plate to zero. However, I have the clamp biting the plate and it doesn’t do anything. (its not plugged into the Plus pin) same as picture in SKR Pro setup page. So maybe that not correct either.
I have a feeling this is a stupid setting that is super easy to change, But because I am so new to all these things I can’t find it.
Thank you all for your help!!!
