UMO+ burning stepper motors and brownish board

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

Since I got my UMO+ the stepper motors get really hot when they're working (I can't touch them for more than a second without burning). Two weeks ago my heated bed sensor died, and when I disassembled the board cover I saw that the the board is brownish (burnt) around the X,Y,Z and E1. On the picture you may not appreciate them very well, I just didn't want to photoshop the picture to give a wrong impression.

Is this normal or is there any risk something fails? I checked everything, but as it's the same board as the UM2, the power sent to the stepper motors can't be easily changed.

    • 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.
