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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
