Issue with the X axis after installing the X-50 rails.
I’ve just upgraded my Woodworker with the X-50 rails, machine homes correctly but when I run a gcode file (which ran correctly on before the upgrade) the X axis dimensions are not correct, code is supposed to engrave a circular logo but it is oval (almost 50% larger on X axis).
Are there machine settings that need to be modified when upgrading to the X-50 rails? I have not seen any instructions on the upgrade where you need to change the settings.
Has anyone else had this issue?
Thanks, but my settings seem to be correct, I have the woodworking and I have always had it set to mm. my “travel-per-rev” is set to 10mm and soft limit is at 816 mm.
The machine was working great with the standard rails (x/ stiffy).
Any other setting that may cause this?
In the instructions it says to change the setting from 10mm to 16mm for the new X50 machine with 1616 ball screws.
this is asked so frequently that we decided to make it the first entry of the User’s FAQ
Thanks, I didn’t catch the change to 16mm from 10mm. I will try this. By the way, where are the instructions for this? I have not seen any instructions on the upgrade, I’ve looked but did not see any and did not receive anything with my X-50 rails.
See @Aiph5u’s link above referencing “User’s FAQ”
I just received and installed the X-50 upgrade (I know, I’m a year behind) and tried my first carve.
You know, one sheet of paper in the box showing these required changes would have saved me a $30 bit and a nice piece of walnut.
