Hi all, and thanks for building and contributing to such a cool toy.
I bought a kit with Z-axis from @BenBurnett, and I’m having trouble with motor detection.
My test setup :
- no load on the motors (chains and sled not attached)
- alternative 12V 5A power supply, not the original one. Tried with another, 12V 4A, same results. Plugged in the Maslow shield
- WebControl 0.94 Windows singlefile. Tried with Makerverse 1.1.2 first, could not find the motor detection, is it still there?
- Tried with firmwares stock 1.28, 1.26, holey 51.27 and custom madgrizzle 101.25
From the logs after Action, Test Motors/Encoders :
13201.21: Sent: B04
13201.73: Testing L motor:
13202.75: Direction 1 - Fail
13203.78: Direction 2 - Fail
13204.28: Testing R motor:
13205.31: Direction 1 - Fail
13206.34: Direction 2 - Fail
13206.83: Testing Z motor:
13210.35: Direction 1 - Pass
13214.31: Direction 2 - Pass
No noise or movement from the left/right motors. The Z motor looks fine.
I switched the cables around, the Z motor works from every port (MP1 MP2 MP3), so I guess the encoders are OK. The left/right motors don’t work even on the Z port MP2.
Any idea what I could try next?
