Simon Fell > Its just code > SFX100 Build Log: Step 2, Motor / Drive Test

Tuesday, October 20, 2020

The 3D printer is still whirring along, few days left there. The motors and drives turned up, so I did a sanity test on all them to make sure there's no issues. This was straightforward enough, wiring the motor to the driver, plug the encoder cable in, and wire power to the driver. Use the jog function to check that the motor spins. The opensfx docs cover this well.

Mains voltage can kill you! make sure you know what you're doing, or get help from a qualified electrician.
