Boxzy Milling Making Strange Noise and Eratic Milling
I was in the middle of making a jig and just at random the head starts following it’s own eratic movements. I was cutting simple circle pockets and the machine just starts cutting odd paths. The Z motion is acting up as well, instead of smooth movement you can hear and see it moving in steps instead of smooth motions. The Z movement also changes, meaning it moves lower than entered into the Gcode. There seems to be 2 points on the Z down where it sounds it struggles to get past 2 different parts.
Also, the Boxzy started to make a strange noise while sitting Idle, like a tapping thud noise. It’s not continuous, but every 5-10 seconds. It sounds like it’s coming from the back of the machine.
I reset by removing power and the USB and relaunching the app, I also created a new file on Easel and the problem still happens. All the limit switches are clean. Any suggestions?
Is this a good question?
