Hi All, An interesting one for you, how many of you have had "stepper motor current alarms" which have ruined jobs or damaged your machine, yesterday I was running a slab flatten, working on a lovely slab of beach rescued oak. Managed to flatten one side then turned over and started the other. 250mm x 450mm x 50mm. Part way through the second side I had what I thought was a catastrophic failure, SEE ATTACHED IMAGE, my right side stepper failed, but my left kept running throwing my X gantry out by approx 150mm left to right. I've also had a couple of other stepper failures see post link; blackbox z axis issues The big question I'm asking here is, can openbuilds in the event of such alarms, pause or even abort the job to prevent jobs from running bad in event of Z issues and prevent expensive damage to machine structure itself!! I'm sure there are many forum members and non forum members that have had these alarms and yet jobs continue. I plead with the "Software Gods" to come up with a much needed solution to save our "babies" from such events. Can a function be build it to automatically pause/abort as a standard setting.? Is there a software view that shows what each current is set at? Is there any way these adjustment knobs/dials could turn by themselves over time? Should they be inspected on a regular basis to ensure no movement has happened, if so a software view of each current would be a really easy way to run a check! ( I had my machines for 4 months now and all of my issues have arisen in last month or so, just weird how it ran fine for months then when it start to heat up during summer months the issues arise ) I've been very lucky with this event, my gantry sides are 5mm carbon fibre and flexed beautifully, if they had been aluminium or metal, it would have been a different story! My machine for now appears to back up and running, but I don't know what damaged has or may have been caused by this event. Thank you in advance, I hope you found this thread interesting and of value to the community.
