hey guys, i've been on this pretty much all day (and i can't really tell you what i wasted that much time on).
heres the problem: i tried to follow the guide and i'm pretty sure i did everything correct - apart from the DMM stuff.
the facts: i have one stepping motor (#1209) and an 4988. everything set up like described - the part about calibrating the 4988. the thing is, if i connect the motor without the DMM i get a noise from the motor. there definitely is current flowing.
if i connect the dmm on one of the coils (chip -> dmm -> coil "in" -> coil "out" -> chip) and power everything on again i get a VERY silent noise. i can only hear it if i'm very near and everything else is silent. definitely not much going on there. additionally, the DMM keeps telling me that there are 0A.
i guess i'm doing something stupid and maybe even obvious with the DMM, but i don't see the problem. maybe someone else can help me out with a tip or two...
by now i've tried using the test-program on the arduino and the motor actually moves. still, the DMM won't show any current. thats a bit weird because the motor clearly moves...
