X Axis Problems
September 18, 2012 03:19AM

So i have been tinkering for a while now and I have found that my X axis motor just stops, but its only on certain movements

Im pretty much in the testing phase of my MDF wolfstrap

I am running marlin and pronterface on windows
All the axes run perfectly when testing in pronterface but when i load up G code, the X axis just doesnt move, i get a high pitch whining noise from the motor and it can be turned by hand, i have played around with settings in The firmware, but to no avail

I have also messed with the current from my stepper controllers but this too does not help at all

Any help would greatly be appreciated

Can you post a snippet of your Gcode?

I came across something interesting while editing the GCODE

the printer homes to the one end stop and from there stops working,
just gives this high pitched noise and locks the Y axis

Ok so i have found my problem, its something to do with the acceleration settings, when i set them very low, the axis moves but then at full acceleration it just stops, this is due to my motors

Is there anywhere to set the max acceleration?
