I’ve run into a new issue that has brought me to a total standstill. First, some specs:
-Advanced FEP Acrylic/Tank
-Advanced Build Plate
-Custom 24V distribution terminal for main board power, heater, and side-mounted thermometer w/ built-in thermostatically monitored relay (power from 24V 10A PSU)
Whenever I try to run my printer, 9 times out of 10 when I turn it on, the Z-axis screeches/whines and won’t move. I’ve replaced both the power supply (10A to a 5A) and the z-axis, as well as reinstalled the firmware (1.18). The screeching is coming from the motor itself; when I try to move the axis by hand I am met with little to no resistance. I’ve already ordered a new internal power board with the thought that maybe something on that was problematic, but I’m beginning to suspect that the main board may have suffered an issue to some extent.
Has anyone else ever experienced this? It use to happen very infrequently (although it did ruin prints when it happened), but it progressively got worse and now I can’t print at all with my Moai. I can upload photos at anyone’s request, just not sure what would be pertinent at the moment. Thanks in advance guys, every problem I’ve run into I’ve managed to solve with your guy’s help!
