[Arduino Uno+CNC Shield V3+DRV8825] Steppers won't rotate

Hey guys,

I am currently making a CNC machine using Arduino Uno, CNC shield V3 with DRV8825 powered by a 12V 30A power supply. To drive the motors I load up GRBL into Arduino Uno and manually jog it using the Universal Gcode sender GUI. However, when I run it, the steppers will not rotate. The steppers vibrates and I hear humming noises coming from them. I have checked to make sure my stepper wires are connected correctly but the problem still persist.

Has anyone encountered this problem before? Please offer some advice.

Thank you :confused:

You will probably get better advice on CNC forum where people are familiar with GRBL. Maybe you have some of the configuration incorrect.

If you know what Arduino I/O pins are used for step and direction for each motor you should be able to adapt this Simple Stepper Code to test each motor on its own without GRBL.

Hey @Robin2,

I got it resolved. Turns out it was some wiring issues. Thanks
