Make sure nothing is in the path of the machine:
Obstructions will cause the machine to make a loud grinding noise while homing. You may also get a "Homing Cycle Failed" error message
Make sure clamps and materials are not blocking the path in any way. Since the Carvey's Wasteboard moves during operation and can hit the back wall of the machine:
check to make sure none of the clamps are hanging off the back edge of the wasteboard
check to make sure no large debris is underneath the wasteboard that may prevent it from moving properly during operation.
- If needed, vacuum the debris from the build area and Carvey floor using the instructions Here
Check Response in the Machine Inspector
You can check whether the Homing Switches or Smart Clamp is responding using the Machine Inspector. Go to Machine > General Settings > Machine Inspector. Each switch will light up green when pressed to show contact, and white when there's no contact.
- You can check the X-Axis by slowly moving the X-Carriage all the way to the left
- You can check the Y-Axis by slowly moving the Wasteboard all the way to the back
- You can check the Smart Clamp by pressing down on the silver button.
