So, I just got my Azteeg board and I set it up, but when I tested the stepper motors some things went wrong. The extruder motor works fine, but the other three from Openbuilds sometimes made a loud noise and other times just don't work at all. I have the stepper motors jumpers installed, but is there anything else I have to do to get them working? Do I have to change some stuff in the config file? I tried changing the current from the default of 1 amp to 1.6 amps, but nothing is working. Any suggestions?
Well can you be a little more specific about the problem. Do they turn at all or just buzz? Videos are good too. X Y and Z motors should be running at 1.7A. DId you use the config file from my website or did you configure it on your own?
I think i fixed the problem. Apparently, the endstops have to be plugged in in order for the motors to work correctly.
Yes, when I tested mine I just faked the end-stops by momentarily shorting across the end-stop pins on the Azteeg board for each of the axis in sequence. Otherwise the motors wont run right because the end-stops are not there and they are expected to be there.
