First of all I would like to say that I am totally newbie in Aurdino and CNC, but in last week I can say that I have learned a lot but the problem is that I have still not managed to make any movement on my stepper motor. I have following configuration:
- Aurdino Mega 2560
- CNC Shield V3.00
- DRV8825 Stepper Motor Driver Carrier, High Current
- Stepper motor - Sanyo Denki 103-547-52500
- Power supply - 12V DC, 3.0A 36W Max
- Grbl Software - GRBL-Arduino-Library-master
I have connected CNC Shield (with DRV8825 drivers) to the Arduino Mega and supplied it with 12V power supply. I have connected my stepper motor to the CNC shield (plugged the connector onto the 4 pins nearby drivers) and connected Arduino via USB to my laptop.
I have installed GRBL library to Arduino, and when I start the G-Code sender I am able to get blinking lights from arduino which means I am well connected to the Arduino mega.
But my problem starts here. When I try to jog/move X, Y or Z aches (no matter where I plugg in my motor) I do not get any kind of movement, nor sound. I get nothing.
I have measure if there is a current/power in cnc shield and on the power supply and also on drivers I can measure that there is current/power on it. Also on my software I get confirmation that the signal is sent and received but I get no movement on my stepper motor.
I really do not know what else should I do and I really hope that someone could help me and give me something so I could be able to finally move my motor. Thak you all a lot in advance .
In attachment is the photo of how it all looks like.
