Dual Z with different drivers

Hi. Im using a Megatronics v2 and would like to set up dual Z with 2 different drivers that would work in mirror.

I selected extruder 0 to be Z but nothing happens. Any suggestions will be appreciated


  • I was able to find the settings for mirroring but now the second Z only rotates in one direction.

    Also moving Y also moves X

    Mind I say that this is a corexy setup.
  • In core xy you need to be more precise. A x move moves x and y motor, that would be correct.

    Regarding second z check in pins.h if the number for direction pin for used board/driver is correct. 
  • Thanks. Did not understood the first part.
  • core xy always moves x and y motor for horizontal or vertical moves. So if you are saying "Moves x" it is not clear if you mean x motor or x direction.
  • After searching all over i havent found a solucion the the Z drive problem. I have found people replace pins but not mirror or duplicate. Thins is my actual pins.h, can you help me_?
