"stuck" Motor
« on: February 16, 2010, 09:04:31 PM »
I am in the process of setting up my mill and my x-axis seems to be getting "stuck"

My hardware is a desktop pc with windows xp pro, Mach 3

hobby cnc pro board with the 305oz stepper motors.

when working with my x-axis in step mode(Diagnostics->Jog Mode) the motor will move very smoothly with no problems. But when the jog mode is set to Cont. the motor will move a tiny bit then get stuck. If any more information in needed please let me know. The motor is also having the same issue when I have been trying to set up steps per unit. It will also get stuck with no load on the motor
Thanks

Sounds like your Vel and Accel is too high in motor tuning and the motor is stalling.
