X acxis motor

Post#1 » Fri Sep 28, 2018 8:32 am

After replacing the X axis the vat does not center with the projector.
Does anyone know how calibrate, so it will stop farther left or right.

It is critical to put the x motor back in the exact original position. Probably when you put the new motor in, you may have turned the motor 1 or 2 screw holes over.. The 6 retaining screws are spaced evenly, so that can easily happen. to fix, go back to original instructions if you have them, other wise, move the motor 1 screw over and test until the tray stops correctly

The X motor can not be rotated in the motor housing or bracket. There is only one position for it.

I have the same question. I ordered a new X axis motor. I assume installation instructions will come with it. If not, when I affix the top arm onto the motor shaft, what position should the arm be in when I tighten the allen screws? Should the tray be engaged into the sensor at the end or should the tray be all the way to the left? Thanks.

The position of the gold arm on the shaft doesn't really matter, just line up the flat on the shaft with the set screw in the arm. The computer will turn the arm until the slide engages the sensor to find "home", that's how it know's where it's at (along with the encoder on the motor itself).

Thank you! I had a feeling that was the case but wanted to make sure.
