Watchdog and X Axis control
I am just getting started. Searched discussions but can't find these topics yet.
First issue, I have no printer yet, only the electronics and trying to establish motor control through the Rep Host. The firmware configurator web page does not seem to allow download unless the watchdog is enabled. I have no extruder, and establishing motor control is difficult to debug with the numerous watchdog messages; I'd like to turn this off but cannot get the firmware to download without watchdog checked.
Second issue: X axis movement seems inconsistent. I assume this has to do with potentiometer adjustments on the A4988, but don't know for sure that I'm sending the correct commands. If I use manual or the Rep-Host X-movement joystick clicks, how can I be sure a pure X-movement command is being sent to the motor (ie, bypassing the "jerk" and other calculations)?
Thanks for your help!
