Hypercube Evolution CoreXY - Smoothie hates me!! confused smiley

I'm having trouble with homing endstops. I'm using optical endstops. I can move the carriage around no problem. It moves in the correct direction.

When I move the carriage over and trigger X and Y it shows:

X_min:1 Y_min:1 Z_min:1 pins- (XL)P1.24:1 (YL)P1.26:1 (ZL)P1.28:1

It appears that homing Y is working. When I try to home X it moves to the right instead of moving to the left where the end stop is.

Here is the entire configuration:

Which XY motor is plugged into which driver on the controller?

I’m using an Azteeg X5 Mini WiFi with SD2224 drivers. Is that what you are looking for?
Re: Hypercube Evolution CoreXY - Smoothie hates me!! confused smiley

No, which driver chip on the board is the A motor plugged into and which is the B motor plugged into?

In smoothieware it is normal to plug the A motor into the X driver and the B motor into the Y driver. A and B motors are defined as in this diagram viewing the XY stage from above:



Where are the endstops located?

switch the plugs between the x and y motors

so X into Y and vice-versa. May have to invert direction settings in the config after that but should address your problem

Edit: TDD explained it better than I did. I should read more thoroughly before I respond smiling smiley

I now have A motor plugged into X and B motor plugged into Y.

Should I need to make changes to Repetier host to invert direction controls for X-Axis, Y-Axis, Z-Axis and Flip X and Y?
Re: Hypercube Evolution CoreXY - Smoothie hates me!! confused smiley
May 20, 2019 07:44PM
Thank you for the assistance. I remove all the inverting stuff from Repetier host and from the config and now I can home X and Y.

I have my Z set to 1/32 stepping and 5120 steps per mm. However when I move 1mm in Repetier host my Z axis moves 6.33 mm.

How many steps per rev in the Z motor(s)?
What is the screw lead?
Is there and gear/belt reduction?

400 steps per mm seems to be the correct number.
Re: Hypercube Evolution CoreXY - Smoothie hates me!! confused smiley
May 24, 2019 07:36PM
"20" is not step/rev, it's teeth on a pulley.
If the screws are 2mm pitch with 4 starts, the lead is 8mm.
If the motor is 200 steps per rev, one turn of the screw (200 full steps) moves the Z axis 8mm. 200steps/8mm = 25 full steps/mm. If you use 32:1 ustepping, 25 steps/mm x 32 ustep/step =800 usteps/mm

I'm not sure why I mentioned the 20 tooth...

After I figured out 1 revolution was 8mm, I found on this forum someone else getting help with this issue.

Thank you for the help.
