I’m getting our farmbot started at our school. We’ve had a lot of fun building and setting it up, we’re trying to configure the unit now with a little bit of struggle. Granted I’m very new at this, but I’m loving the challenge so far.
I’m coming across a few challenges I need to solve:
I’m wondering if we tightened the belts too tight, based on the movement sounds we get when travelling on any axis.
I’m trying to set a home position first by using stall detection then using the Find Home function for all axes. When I try so I get this result.
Seeing that this is in a beta state, I try to move the axes to my bottom left perspective, but since the home position is set to somewhere middle top right, it limits my movement and greys out the option to move manually on the X and Y. I’ve set “allow move past home” but then I get movement like this.
Should I move by hand the whole system to my desired home, set it, and go from there? I’m thinking based on the sound of the machine we’re not getting the right power/tension.
