Ultimaker 1 Extrusion Motor Stopped Working

Recommended Posts

So I rebuilt my extruder mount over the past few days and once I reassembled it all to give it a test my extrusion motor no longer worked. I switched the e-motor plug with the z-axis motor plug and this fixed the extrusion but left the z-axis inoperable. I then switched the plugs back but switched the stepper drivers between the two motors and this left the z-axis working but no extrusion.

This tells me that the problem is on the electronics board. Does anyone have any idea what could have happened or what I could do about it?

One idea I had was to use the optional 2nd extruder motor port to power my one extruder. I tried to modify my configuration.h , advanced config.h and pins.h files to pull this off but had no success, it was difficult to be sure I had edited all the correct bits of code to effectively make the switch. It seems to me that this would be an easy fix to make if I spent more time with the code but it would be great if anyone has experience doing something like this and could point me in the correct direction.

Thanks a lot guys.

    • 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.
