I'm experiencing an issue with my stepper motors on my custom built 3D printer.
The motors are stalling out/are inaccurately moving. There is no grinding sound as if the steps are off or the belts is too lose so I believe the issue is due to the power supply. I am using the Azteeg 3x Pro board powered by a 12V 30A power supply. The motors are nema 17's salvaged from a junk printer but they seem to be in good shape. I don't know the input amperage for the steppers due to how I acquired them. The 12v power supply was a cheap buy from amazon.
Is it possible the power supply is delivering inconsistent output?
I also tried using a 24V 10A power supply but the issue seemed to get worse. (this power supply was also a cheap amazon buy)
Another idea I thought might be the issue is the length of wire from motor to control board. I read that the longer the wire the stronger the resistance. I'm using about 7 ft of wiring. Any thoughts on this issue?
The only other issue would be the firmware, but I've triple checked this issue and I'm pretty sure the coding is right.
