So I first bought all the electronics from a cheap china seller and had bad results. Thinking that it was because of the quality, I purchased legitimate electronics from Ebay. The results I had from the china knock off and the legitimate versions were exactly the same. I’m wondering if buying the electronics from you will make any difference or not.
Here’s the problem: In repetier host, I go to move the x axis through manual controls. The stepper motor will move, but then at the end of the movement, there will be a high pitched buzz coming from the stepper motor which is accompanied by vibration. When it is making movements, it is fine, but when it is in the idle position, there will be varying pitches. Sometimes when I put in smaller steps, the motor will not even move.
I tested the stepper motors with my printrbot board and they are all functioning perfectly fine. I altered the current going through the motor with the potentiometer, but when the sound disappears, so does the ability for the stepper motor to step.
Is there something that I am missing with flashing the firmware? or something I was supposed to update in repetier host?
I really want to get this project working! Thanks in advance!
