The latest problem I’m having with my Taz 6 is intermittent false endstop triggers while printing. It seems to be happening primarily on the Y-axis but it has happened on the X-axis a few times as well.
Here are the details of the problem I’m having:
Let’s say I try to print something in the small to medium range (relative to the maximum envelope) that I’ve printed many times before. It may work flawlessly the first time. Then the next time I try to print it it will start off fine then midway through the print (different points each time) one of the endstops (usually the Y-axis) will send a false trigger message (confirmed by digital readout) which locks the movement along that axis but the print will attempt to continue spewing filament all over the place (see picture attached). In some cases if I immediately try running the same print again it will work. In some cases it will take 2 or 3 tries. Sometimes I give up.
Here is the troubleshooting I’ve done so far:
- Tested endstops with multimeter. All showed good.
- Tested endstops by commanding table to move and manually triggering them. All functioned normally.
- Verified spade connections at each endstop are in place and tight
- Verified all exposed wire harness connections are in place and tight
- Verified no apparent damage to any wiring outside control box
- Verified no snags occuring to wiring throughout full motion of the table
So what’s next? Has anyone else had this problem?
