wipper/ tilt issues

Postby transformer » Mon Jun 08, 2015 7:32 am

hi all I set up z axis with massive 600mm of travel ,so after reading and looking at others I was building a tilt or a wiper.my problem is I hooked up motor to x axis as a tilt but motor movement barley moves so tried adjusting stepper controller and all im getting is a high pitch the motor get hot fast so dose the driver....ok so then tried y axis as a wiper with same problem.in cw the only good movement is in the z axis running very smooth.
so went back to pronterface and tried motor movement there what do ya know works fine but sill getting hot I cant get ride of the humming on x or y axis when not being used ?

// The pullups are needed if you directly connect a mechanical endswitch between the signal and ground pins.

//If your axes move in one direction ONLY when the endstops are triggered, set [XYZ]_ENDSTOP_INVERT to true here:
