Nema 17 configuration in marlin

Recommended Posts

hay,

I'm currently replacing the motors of my ultimaker Original to Nema 17 steppermotors (200 rev 1.8 degree).

I wired everything but, the motors are acting strange. :(

what kind of settings do i have to put in marlin to let them turn  right and in a normal way?

thanks

cheers,

Roy

The steppers you describe are as far as I can tell, pretty much identical to the originals.

Ie. same size and step/rev. specs.

If they are running the wrong way, you probably plugged them in the wrong way in your board (that will make them run "backwards").

So either turn the plug 180 degrees, or go to the Invert axis section in the configuration.h file in marlin, and invert the affected axis.

The motors are turning in the right direction. but the thing is they ar gibbering when i run for example a program.

    • 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.
