Exchange of the feeder motor

Recommended Posts

I want to realize a syringe extruder. Since I do not want to change to much of my UM2+ext, I thought a buy a new step motor change them.

Therefore, I can use the g-code generated with simply3D or Cura for the syinge dispensor. In my first test a have used an old stepper from a makerbot machine. This motor got extremly warm (more than usual). Then I bought a step motor, which has a similiar resistance. (this one)

This time I have no problems with the temperatur and the motor is running as long as I do the material transportation "manually" in the tune folder of the printer. However, the motor is not running, if I try to print with a g-code.

Does someone has an idea why or can help me?

    • "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.
