Well I finally powered it up and it doesn’t respond.
I have the steppers sitting on the table, the Z axis stepper runs as soon as the DC PS is turned on. It runs about 100 RPM for a few seconds then reverses directions and does the same thing. It just keeps switching directions as long as the power is on.
It won’t respond to any manual jogs, just keeps doing its thing, until the power is off.
The other two steppers sit idle all the time.
I did go through the Mach 3 setup to the best of my ability, which as this point is kinda low.
Using Mach 3, Xylotex XS-3525/8S-1 controller boards and Embeddedtronics Optoisolated parallel breakout board.
