x-axis suddenly stops working and dies?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

While I was printing a simple 3D object the x-Axis suddenly stopped working and the printer started only moving the y and z axis. I switched the x with the y in the motherboard which made clear that the x motor still works but apparently the chip input of the x axis does not work anymore. Putting the y motor in the port didn't result in nothing, clearly there is something wrong with the input of the x axis ( I guess ). I reinstalled the firmware, reinstalled replicatorG but no success.. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

I tried swapping the driver boards and it shows that the problem is in the board because still the port of the x-Axis gives no signal. I tried adjusting the step driver but also no signal of a fix. Got a little question about that one, i can't seem to feel the "stop limit" or something they are talking about on the wiki. It says that there is a max of turning it but I can just turn rounds and rounds. And it also raised a new question.. where can I get a new step driver?

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
