No Motor movements
« on: December 04, 2018, 05:05:27 PM »
Hi People. Just built a homebrew CNC machine with plans from Hobby CNC.

     Installed Mach 3, The program seems to like my computer ran the Driver test program, setup all the correct parameters I think according to the website for their controller, all the wiring checks out.
Problem I have is the X axis motor only turns one way,  it sounds good, Y & Z axis do not move at all, though Z axis motor make a noise but does not turn.

Any help appreciated Thanks David.

Hi Branden

Yes. I have finally have my unit working, believe it or not I was reading my Multimeter wrong, trying to run it on to low a voltage.
I now have torque, and good movement.

Thanks David :D
