View Full Version : falling z-axis???

Hello All,

2 week-old machine has ran a few good projects. I tried to run one this past weekend and after a few carving passes, it decided to droop in the z direction a little more with every pass. I stopped it and recompiled the project and it did the same thing. I got one of the projects that Jeff has posted and tried to run it. I got the smae result tonight. I let it run a little longer this time. See the picture for the result when it stalled the y-axis. Any one else had this one?

I made sure the bit was still snug in the adapter. The bit stays in the adapter and the adapter is not coming loose from the chuck. This is a z movement issue or the programming that is telling the z axis how to move.

Thats exactly what it looks like. Just call the people at carvewright and they will walk you through what you need to do to fix it.
