Newbie help with motors

Postby Shane » Mon Nov 07, 2016 1:02 am

First I just want to say thanks for any help I might receive here. Pretty new at this and don't have a clue. I received a 3 axis kit and can't seem to get the stepper motors to run. I have mach3 and a parallel breakout board from buildyourowncnc.com. stepper motors are 425 in/oz with cw230 drivers. Wire the motors according to a schematic but verified continuity between the wires already. Power supply is supplying 36.4 volts. Motor is apparently getting power since it appears to lock the motor when powered on. I set the parameters according to the book. Swapped motor and driver to eliminate one being bad. Not sure where to go from here

If you've followed the instructions in the book everything should work. The exception is on page 201 (the motor outputs settings in Mach 3). In figure 18-5 the step low A column should be green ticks (not crosses) for x y and Z axis.

Apart from that - as long as you've every step in the book wired everything correctly and set up mach 3 as per the book it should all work.
