Just another question. I wondered if I could have “messed up” the motor by not following the instructions that well from the manual starting on page 32 (step 30)? Honestly, I was confused about the installation of the servo horn. In particular, I didn’t understand the reason for placing the horn in the “center” (step 31) and then removing it and placing it elsewhere for the “final position” (step 32), all without moving the motor shaft, which is difficult because that horn is difficult to remove. I was worried that I could have done any of the following:
- Pushed the horn too far to find the center (I thought perhaps this was causing the servo to bounce)
- Placed the horn in the wrong place (center)
- Potentially placed the horn in the incorrect final position (also potentially causing the servo to bounce)
Is there any reason why Step 31 installs the horn at the “center” and then in step 32 we are asked to remove it (which is difficult) and then place it elsewhere? I don’t honestly see the point in installing the horn at Step 31 without doing anything but just removing it again, but that’s my opinion…
Just some thoughts I had…
Thank you Lenore! I have requested a new one :)
I’ve seen lots of post on the forum about the servo jumping. Mine jumps
too, and I wonder if it’s not a software issue. I doubt that so many
servos would be “bad.”
Mine bounces sometimes (not every time) when the servo is lifting the pen during use. I haven’t
paid attention if it does this when the pen is lifted while the stepper
motors move the egg or only when lifting the pen when complete, but like
I said, it seems random.
I have pasted a link to a video to show what happens when I gently drop the pen arm onto the servo horn.
