Hopefully someone can help, I am building my own 'Cloned' UM2 Extended and have come to a problem with wiring up the stepper motors (the ones I had ordered came with bare wires, and no connection) would someone please be able to advise me the correct stepper motor wiring / pin out (ABCD / 1346) relative to the UM2 board pin out please.

 

I was also wondering if its able to run the motors manually through the control board without having the print head and heat bed plugged in/wired up?

 

Thanks in advance for any help given guys, I hear that this is a great community for helping the newbie.

    here's the wire schemematics of the um2 motors, and all other UM2 details...

    Regarding running the motors, I usually use Simplify3D for manual control but there are plenty options, f.e. http://www.pronterface.com/

    The board will give warnings when f.e the temperature sensors are not connected, so just plug them in..

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
