X Y Z motors NOT moving independently



  • Hey all!

    So we have our XYZ NEMA 17 motors connected and when we use the Duet Web Control (DWC) console section to send a gcode command to test, all the X Y and Z motors move.

    To clarify, say we send "G1 Z100" or something like "G0 X0 Y0 Z100" or anything like that…ALL the motors move. The X and Y moves along with the Z.

    Why would this be the case? Shouldn't it be JUST the Z?

    I know this is a newb question but we couldn't find the answer on this forum or on google.

    Thank you in advance!



  • Maybe you have set your printer to use delta kinematics.
    Please show us your config file

    I never thought of that! I should be able to check either tonight or tomorrow night and get back to you (our printer is at school right now).

    So, if this is the case, I would change in the config file to a Cartesian printer and that could potentially fix the issue?

    Hey everyone.

    So I used this tool here: https://configurator.reprapfirmware.org/

    I made sure to customize it as closely as possible to what we need (mainly making sure to set the coordinates to Cartesian), and then uploaded the generated zip to the Duet. We ended up having some communication problems, so we redid the steps and had to disable DHCP and enable static IP. After this, it worked!

    We are now able to send individual X Y Z commands and it moves the appropriate motor by itself, so it seems your suggestions was spot on! Thank you
