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.

    Alright, what are their current and supply voltage rating?
