What happens if..

  • Hi, is there a damage to the DuetWifi v1.03 if I move the axis by hand while the board is powered or un-powered? Also does the movement speed matter?
    The board was un-powered and I noticed a blue LED somewhere lit up when I moved the head of my coreXY printer. Thanks.

    Whdn you move the motors by hand they behave as generators. That is why the blue LED came on. If you move the motors by hand quickly then you might damage the drivers. So when moving them by hand, do it slowly. If you will be moving them a lot while you make modifications to your printer, disconnect the motors from the Duet.
