Connect to printer problem

Postby morphicmetal » Thu Jan 21, 2016 9:20 am

Hi Guys, just finished the droplit build and I'm having problems connecting. I'm pretty sure I got it configured right but get invalid printer response in the connect window of Mattercontrol. When I hit connect, the whining from the motor pauses while the connection is attempted, then resumes after failing. The motor spindle is also locked up. Any Ideas ?
regards, Dale.

I wasn't aware that you could use Mattercontrol with the Droplit printer.

... you can't. It might move the Z axis some, but you certainly can't use it to print with.

Ok so I can upload stepper speed control from arduino 1.6.7 and the led on the board starts flashing with simultaneous whining from the motor, but no rotation. I know I wired it up correctly so it makes me think of a defective motor ? maybe
