I’m in the process of building (another) CNC machine and am wanting to drive the Z-axis NEMA 23 motor with a DRV8825. I know that I won’t be able to get the full torque, but am just wanting to test/play around with the machine before i buy some TB6560s…
When i try to drive the NEMA 23, it doesn’t do a thing, it doesn’t even feel like it’s trying to put current through the coils, but i can connect a NEMA 17 and it works. I know that the motor works when connected to a different driver (one of the TB6560’s driving the X & Y axis)
Just wondering if there’s any reason why i can’t drive it??? maybe over current???
