I just finished the wiring and can get repetier host to move everything in the direction I expected. The Z axis was the only exception but I inverted that axis to solve the problem.
My only question is when I move my Y axis it is significantly louder than my X and both are louder than any belt driven 3d printer I’ve used.
What could be my potential issue and solution to this problem? Could I have tighten to the bolts too much on the Y axis?
Also it seem like the gantry has more wiggle room in it than I expected. How can I tell if I have too much wiggle room and what I might need to tighten to resolve this?
Thanks in advance for any help or advice offered.April 24, 2017 at 1:07 pm #32135
Did you get the parts here?April 24, 2017 at 1:53 pm #32141
I didn’t get anything from the store. I printed my own parts, sourced my own electronics and ended l even built my own wiring harness, which I’ll never do again. It wasn’t worth my time.
Is there a possibility that the belt is just too tight?
I’m going over the FAQ to make sure I’ve done everything I can.April 24, 2017 at 7:24 pm #32156
Okay, check the stepper motor driver voltage for that axis. Also, what do you mean by louder? Motor whine, bearings? Can you post a video?April 25, 2017 at 7:58 am #32174
I don’t think it’s the stepper motor voltage because I set all of them at or around .7 volts. I’m not sure I’d call the noise a wine.
@Barry, I can pay a video when I get home tonight. It will probably appear after 10 pm est just to give you a heads up. I hope the video will clarify the noise situation.April 25, 2017 at 8:14 am #32176
0.7 volts on what type of drivers? What are the steppers you bought rated for?
The steppers do make noise sometimes, as long as it isn’t ear piercing it is probably fine.April 25, 2017 at 4:26 pm #32192
I have DRV8825. They aren’t ear piercing but I found it strange that they are set to a very similar voltage but they aren’t making the same noise level. When I did try and run gcode through their system it was quieter than my metal music so it seems that this only happens when I try to run it manually.
