Lost X & Z totally

Hi Guys, We are newbies to the CNC, been playing around and creating for about a couple of months now.
Was cutting out a simple board with 2 hild down clamps well out of the way.
It had done 2-3 perfect passes and the all hell broke lose. The machine went rogue maybe 8" off line of pattern and managed to clip one of my clamps.
I know have absolute no X & Z movement.
I have rebooted control box(a simple turn off and on)
When it boots up it asks to HOME it…awesome I thought.
I watch screen count down homing of Z them X with absolutely no physical kovement.
Then it home the Y like a dream.
Cannot move in X or Z direction with anything.

Any ideas.


Hi Scott - welcome to the forums. First, recommend you check all the physical connections. At the controller, at the steppers, and all the places in between. It just so happens X and Z travel the same paths. If everything is connected, take a close look at each connector and ensure the pins and wires are seated properly and nothing has broken free. If all that is good, I would send a note to OF support and get their assistance. Best of luck! Let us know how it turns out.

Thanks for the advice Tom, you nailed it! Cables had somehow worked loose and once reconnected ended the problem.
Thanks for the prompt reply, much appreciated.
