Troubleshooting

Issue: X/Y Axis will not zero

  1. Open Shop Bot 3. Select Utilities>Reset Default Settings. Click Yes, then Ok on the prompts. Next it will ask to select the tool model. Select PRS ShopBots>Standard Tools with Z Prox> ShopBot PRS96x48standard.
  2. Try zeroing the XY. You can also do some Move/ Jog tests and then use a tape measure to measure the accuracy to see that it has been zeroed.

Issue: Move/Jog on X & Y Axes are slow, jerky and stuttering

In the ShopBot 3 Software, double check to make sure the numbers in the two “Move” fields read ‘3’ and ‘2’. In the “Jog” field make sure the numbers read ‘4’ and ‘3’.
