CNC motion control problems


Something went wrong with my mill. It seems to be constrained to the X-Axis.

The axis is weak. It also runs in the same direction sometimes no matter what direction I jog it. It often doesn’t start. I changed the¬†acceleration¬†from 400 down to 200 and that didn’t help.

I jiggled all the wires around as well.

So I’m a little concerned that there is an issue with the X-controller.

I will send a note to my supplier to get another controller.

Here is a video of the axis being weak. And another of the light action on the controllers.

The X-axis is the far right controller in the 2nd video. On the mill, the X-axis is the one that moves the spindle across the gantry (Y is the longest axis in my mill).
