So first of all the kittaz is great, stout, and wonderfully documented. Everything went smoothly in the build and it took far less time than I anticipated that it would, about four hours of build time, perhaps a bit less. the only snag I encountered was a defunct power supply, but the wonderful people at Lulzbot quickly sent me a new one and I got everything up and running except a couple little hiccups.
-the Z-axis motor on the left side of the frame next to the electronics case does not want to turn, I can not tell if it is an issue with the stepper motor or if there is too much friction on that side, however it makes a horrible grinding noise when I try to move the z axis up or down.
-the other issue I am having is that when I try to home any of the axis they do not sense the end stops and just keep try to push the carriage along and the belts skip like mad while I franticly look for a stop button on pronterface. I am not sure how to check and see if it is a hardware issue or if there is a software issue or if it is wiring. I don’t know how to check and see if the end stops are sending anything to the computer at all, is there a way to get into the raw data?
thank you for any advice you might have! I’ll just keep trying to figure it out, but I thought the intelligent and experienced people of the Lulzbot community might have some ideas!
