Software issue

Hello everyone,

I tried the newest version 4.21 of the software on my 4x-23 machine but I have some issues :

When I order home or build from the designer software, the setup wizard window appears, then I set up every parameters (assigned boards, motors amperage etc...) and once it's done the X-winder executor window is here but nothing happens. During that period hissing can be heard from the stepper motors and those of the DH become very hot, I assume they receive a too high amperage.

Does anyone has been faced with the same issues or has ideas about causes or solutions ?

Is this version well compatible with a laptop running on windows 10 ?

Thank you for your help,

  • Hi I just build up my 4x-23 and tired the software version 4.21 for start. It isn`t usable actually. The DH becomes very hot and the setup window apears when I set the parameters and when I try homing. 

    What I found out was that the motor amp value are changing every time after saving the values. E.g. I set up 1,6 amps and after saving the software lists 160000 !!! 

    I will try the old software on monday.

    Best regards Peter

    • Hi, the old software 4.16 works for me. I hope you can fix the bugs in version 4.21.
