X and Y Axis not moving at all.

Recommended Posts

I am in desperate need of advice.

My new Ultimaker Original+ is just not moving on the X or Y axis. I have triple checked all connections and firmware but they are just not moving at all even if i try to Auto Home and I am stumped? Does anyone have any advice?

So if you plug a x/y motor to the z then it works?


No, The Z motor works fine but the X and Y do that jumping thing like in the video above when they are plugged into the Z and moved from the ulticontroller.

They make the same noise when I do the Auto Home and they are wired up correctly.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
