Initiating Motors to Home Positions Works... Moving the Motors Individually does not

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I have a printrbot metal plus... Through Cura, I have been trying to make sure all of the motors move the way I want them to. If I press the home-y button, the y-motor works flawlessly. If I press the home-x button, the x-motor works flawlessly. However, for example, if I press the individual y+ or y- buttons, there is no movement whatsoever.

So, why might the home selection work, and not the individual selections?

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
