Third Tool Drive Problem

  • I've been setting up a third extruder tool, and have been having trouble setting up the last drive for the extruder motor. The first two tools have been configured and set up and tested with and can print fine, but adding the third tool, the motor drive selected for it never runs a motor.

    I am using the Duex5 to drive some of my axis, and want to use drives on this board to drive this final extruder.

    The extruder heats, holds a temperature, but will not run a drive motor. I am using a higher drive number because my X, Y and Z axis are already connected to other drive numbers. (see below)

    The commands that I'm using to set everything up are as follows:
    M569 P0 S1 ; Drive 0 goes forwards (change to S0 to reverse it)
    M569 P1 S1 ; Drive 1 goes forwards
    M569 P2 S1 ; Drive 2 goes forwards
    M569 P3 S1 ; Drive 3 goes forwards
    M569 P4 S0 ; Drive 4 goes backwards
    M569 P9 S1 ; Drive 9 goes forwards
    M584 X6 Y5 Z1:2 E3:4:9 ; Drive remapping

    M906 X2000 Y2000 Z1600 E2000 ; Set motor currents (mA)
    M350 X16 Y16 E1 I1 ; Set 16x microstepping with interpolation
    M92 X78.74 Y106.77 Z3316 ; Set axis steps/mm
    M92 E80.25:80.25:80.25 ; EXTRUDER STEPS/MM
    M563 P0 D0 H1 F1
    M563 P1 D1 H6 F2
    M563 P2 D2 H7 F2

    No matter what I do, I can't get a motor drive to spin once the extruder comes up to temperature. Any help would be appreciated.

    Does the Settings General page of DWC recognise the board as a DueX5 and not a DueX2?
    What status does M122 return for driver 9?
    Have you tried that motor and cable on another output, or a known working motor and cable connected to driver 9?
