x-motor not working

Recommended Posts

A few. First, check if the step motor driver is properly configured:

Also, you can check if the endstops are properly working, maybe they are shorted out causing the machine to think the printerhead is at the end all the time and thus refuses to move.

You can also try to swap out the X and Y motor connectors to see if the problem is with the motor or the electronics. If it's in the electronics, try swapping the step motor driver from X and Y (small boards).

    • 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.
