THC Causing Z to rapid up and down

Post by TrinityFabworks » Mon May 13, 2019 11:53 am

I have a proma THC and when it moves up and down, it does so too quickly and causes a back and forth sawing motion. Is there a way to slow down the z axis on movements caused by the thc?

I get that, I usually have it set around 6, which I think is a little too much. I'm having a problem with it over shooting because my z responds in such a fast manner that I think the THC can't keep up.
