Z Axis
« on: July 25, 2015, 10:36:18 PM »
Hi,
I am unable to control my Z Axis. When I start the machine to cut a file the Z axis lowers, but wont stop, it wants to continue in a downward direction.
Has anybody got any ideas?

Regards
Terry

Hi Terry,

Just my thoughts...

If the Z axis DRO continues counting down while the axis is on walkabout then the chances are that the problem lies in your Gcode.
If the Z axis DRO continues counting both up and down while the axis is on walkabout then I would suspect that the axis direction signal is not being properly recognized by the controller. 
If the Z axis DRO stops counting while the axis is on walkabout then you need to look at your driver hardware.
