I’ve been trying to get the Discov3ry connected to my printer (a FlashForge Creator Dual). I’ve struggled with finding the right way to connect to the printer’s board, but think I’ve got it right. I could hear the motor spinning, but nothing was moving. So, I took the motor mount off and took the stepper motor off of the other assembly.
Now when I run my printer’s filament load routine, the motor spins (very slowly). But when it’s mounted in the “gear box”, nothing moves. With everything off, I expected that I could at least turn the motor by hand, but I can’t. Though both pieces move freely individually, neither move when connected.
Any advice on how to deal with this? Is the motor maybe not moving fast/forcefully enough?
Any info on what that “gear box” even is so I can read about it? I’m not allowed to upload images, but here’s a link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/6uko5y821mfqaf0/2015-08-16%2022.15.27.jpg?dl=0
BTW, can I get permission to post photos? I’ve taken photos of my wiring setup to share with others and make a guide for the printer. It would also be nice to get that cartridge pack for posting a guide
