I've got to get my machine moving again...
- Since I've changed houses I lost my old laptop that I used on my cnc
router so I connected an old pc to it and setup everything so I
thought. Now when I try and job my machine the motors just buzz and
don't move. It has to be a setting in TurboCNC cause I replaced the
controller board and put a new gecko 201 in to test. Here is my setup
1 - Axxus DB1 Breakout Board
3 - Gecko 201's
3 - KP56LM2-097 Stepper Motors in Bipolar Configuration using
black/red & green/white wires (1.8 degrees/step)
I'm a little confused on a few of the settings. How do I calculate
some of these
Pulse Width: 10?
Step Pen Active High or Low?
Direction Pen Active High or Low?
Start Vel: 250?
Max Acceleration: 1000?
I can't think of any other way to test the system but I do remember
having this same problem when I first built this thing years ago. Any
help would be appreciated. Thanks
