I just got to the point of first movement today. X and y went great, but z doesn’t want to move. The motor moves when disconnected from the pineapple, and if I assist the movement it will spin, but on its own, it just skips. I confirmed it is not spinning inside the pineapple without it moving. I have my 8225 drivers at 1v, and from what I’m reading, it seems like I shouldn’t go much higher. I tried it on all of the drivers with the same result.
It does take some effort to move z by hand. Is there something I need to adjust to make it easier to move? Maybe some lube? Can I take the driver to a higher voltage?
