My farmbot moves inverted, that is, from the home point out of the map. I have home in the right upper corner. The bot moves correct in the real field, but on my virtual map starting from the home corner it moves right directon out of the map (not like in reality left direction through the field). I have tried everything countless times…
Zero point on the map
Invert X-axis motor
I am very confused. I don’t even know exactly how to describe the error or where to start looking for the problem in a strutured way.
We have installed our Farmbot Genesis XL in a greenhouse. Since we could not reach the screws of the X-axis so well from the outside, we mounted some things the other way around. Also the UTM on the Z-axis was mounted rotated.
Good Morning from Germany. Thank you for your reply. I did like you told me. But now he is stuck in the right upper corner, because the Home position is on there. i tried finding the length but it didn’t help. he moves like on the virtual map but somehow he still behaves as if i had home on the left side (hope this is understandable).
Unfortunately not, only Farmbot staff members are able to see right into WebApp accounts. Sharing account credentials also should not be an option (to your own safety!). If we can’t figure this out this way, we can ask the official Farmbot support for help.
I’m fine with German, but it might be more comfortable for other people coming across this thread. You already know how to change internationalization?
After inverting the encoder it still moves virtually to the right? Sounds like nothing happened when you changed the parameter.
Usually after changing the invert toggle of your encoder, the axis should be almost instantly displayed mirrored to the home line, in my case from 197mm to -197mm. That is an indicator, that the parameter has changed.
The movement error you are receiving is probably caused by the motor turning the other way than the encoder expects. If you also invert the motors it will move again, but the axis always moves to wrong direction. In this case I would rotate the motor plug for 180°, but I think you can’t do that on a Farmduino board right?
