EleksDraw Software/Cabling help, Please
I have the EleksDraw and loaded the EleksMaker software. One of the stepper motors is attached to X, One attached to Y1 and the servo (to the Servo pin port). I can load up the EleksMaker software and the X/Y grid works fine but the pen servo makes a loud jittering sound almost like it is trying to make micro adjustments or something.
I tried turning the connector around but then it does not work at all.
Probably you must reflash your Mana board. It helped me with EleksEGG as suggested @EleksMaker-Z on http://forum.eleksmaker.com/topic/67/problem-with-servo/10.
Thank you for the quick response and I did load that software/Firmware into the system but the issue now is how to control the Drawing instrument (servo) to engage or disengage? I see all of the controls for the x/y and that works great it is just the servo that is not engaging.
Laser ON/OFF button moves pen servo. Perhaps you must adjust default laser power for that. I adjusted it so that it is almost in left side. Just a left border is seen. And Default Weak Laser is in maximum left or zero.
In EleksEGG with laser off, pen is down and with laser on, pen is up.
Found that the pen servo fried (not sure why) but a quick trip to the RC Hobby store and now I am back in operation. Thanks for all the help.
Now just trying to find out how to use the software I just want to sign my name with it but it either fills in the letters when I just want it to make one stroke just like in the demo.
For demo like experience use http://forum.eleksmaker.com/category/16/g-code-tool丨inkscape and make G-code. After that you can send it to your EleksDRAW with EleksCAM.
Only with EleksCAM you can't now achieve what you want...
