Re: Stepper motor only moves in one direction

Yes, originally the extruder motor was the one having the issue. I swapped the that stepper motor driver with the one for the x-axis and then x-axis had the same issue and the extruder motor was fine. It would only move in one direction, I think this was because the driver wasn't supplying enough po...

I recently purchased a GEEETECH 3D Printer Pro B and was able to get it built successfully, but when I tried printing the extruder motor would not push the filament through. I was able to track the issue back to the stepper motor driver by moving it to the x-axis slot. When testing it on the x-axis ...
