  • No particular reason, I just sorta cracked on with the guide.  I have other things to change anyway, so may as well change this too. For testing though I'll move the stepper over and see what it does - bet it works! 
  • I have 1 and 2 fitted. I have tried the config using E1 and E2 as well as E2 and E3... Though using the configuration tool to do that. I will try manually altering it now, maybe the config tool isn't updating it properly...

  • For problem three, I have ruled out:  Cables (swapped with other motors, they work) RAPS drivers (swapped with other motors, they work) Poor connections (unlikely on both motors but they are definitely good after buzzing out with a meter) I've gon…
  • Figured out problem 2) after reading the schematic again. It was a bad ribbon cable (ashamed to say I made it mysef and hadn't quite got good enough contacts with the plug. Tightened that up and they work - woohoo!)
