Machine: Morphorn K-40 with extensive shipping damage, I hope they didn’t ship it this way…
Board: The Cohesion3D board about a month old or less.
Firmware: _Smoothie with some questions
- I learned that I need a real milliamp meter instead of the %power digital display. That is fine, but where on the board do I connect such meter, potentiometer. schematics seem to be obscure.
- Since a “New” board is out, communications concerning the 3D board running a small rotary table is confusing. Does it run one without an expensive external motor driver?
- The X Home switch was destroyed by problems in the gantry, due to the mentioned shipping damage. I need to replace the switch with a) the optical switch that came with it, or b) a mechanical normally closed switch compatible with the 3D.
- since it will now be coming off the board instead of the ribbon, I need the pinout for the pins on the board. I have unplugged the damaged switch from its ribbon and now the unit does not home.
I have, with great difficulty, resolved the other problems and have a fine working laser. Possibly Mophorn had to dump a bunch of these defective ones, I just saw them on a site for $69.00
