Just finished assembling my Primo and am working on getting the electronics squared away.
I’m using an MKS GEN L V1.0 with Marlin 2.0 firmware and purchased the stepper wiring harness from the V1 shop, so motors are wired in series.
When using Repetier Host (also tried other control software - same issue), I’m able to initially move one axis as much as I want, back and forth, without problems after connecting. It doesn’t matter which axis I move, it works and moves in the correct direction. However, when I move one axis, then try to move another axis after, the machine doesn’t move and the motors start making a ticking sound. I then have to disconnect the USB cable to make it stop.
While trying everything I could think of, I found that if I turn off the motors (by clicking the button on the control tab in repetier host) before trying to move a different axis, everything moves as it should with no issues.
I’m pretty new to this and have exhausted all troubleshooting I can think of. Any ideas on how to get to the bottom of this? Wasn’t able to figure out how to upload a video, but if that would help, let me know.
Thanks for looking!
