received my B9 kit, put everything together z-axis works fine X. axis not so much. I took everything apart followed the wiki and what information I could find on the forms in utilizing the toggle switch on the control panel sometimes the motor will move other times it won't. When it is moving I can actually stall the motor by placing my finger on the shaft. Has anyone else experienced this problem and are there any known remedies.
I checked and disassembled the motor. I took off the vat sweeper bar (2 set screws). The reduction gear (the little brass one below the reduction head) only moves if I movew the encoder. Once its started it seems to dun fine but as soon as I shut it off it will not restart.
with your side rails and vat and plate holders taken out u should just have flat surface x axis plate and motor arm right.. if you move arm now it will rotate 360 non stop since sensors dont pick up vat. Check sensor placement
****make sure ure motor arm is tightened on the flat part of head...when the arm moves to the left ** or open vat**the flat part of the motor head is facing the front of machine.when at home position the flat part of motor head should be facing backz plate.
i usually tighten at open vat position first Or arm to left-- then i move x axis to right and tighten the other side fron front...
** im asuming u alredy put x and z axis together**!! if you are still at assembly stage just do it right from that point!!!* also put like a washer underneath the arm and x axis plate so when u tighten the arm it has some space in between like pic in assembly.
check the wiring------ and last if all fails disconect from power supply and usb for some time.. then reconect....also install new version of b9. 1.73.
