Need Ports and Pins setup - Black Toe

Postby rheine » Fri Apr 15, 2016 8:35 pm

I am a long tome user, 2X4 Black Toe. Today I booted up, everything looked OK but no motor movement. Looking at config all my ports and pins were zeroed out??? I thought I saw a walk through somewhere by Patrick but I can't find it.

You could just look at your breakout board and see which pins each motor is hooked to.
If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?

Got all back and hooked up. The motor tuning specs are in the forum. They came up on Google. For my table I have to switch the U-Mode and reverse X and Y. I saved my profile folder for safe keeping. Anyone, If your motors lock on boot but don't move on command start with ports then pins, then offline mode and jog toggle.
