Stepper motors Z axis move very very slow

Stepper motors Z axis move very very slow
April 15, 2017 09:04AM
Hello all ,

I have a slight problem with my stepper motors of the z axis , they turn very very very slow when the axis goes down or up ( it takes 8 sec to move 10mm ) . There's no banding in the rod's , when i connect the motors on the x and y connections they work just fine . I just upgraded to these lead screws and all worked fine before , i have replaced the stepper driver but that did not help , i checked my configuration.h file but i cant see it there .Sorry for my english but i hope some one can help me out here . I post my configuration.h file to . I hope it is not the ramps board.

Try Z feedrate to 15 and Z acceleration to 800

If you change them in config, after uploading firmware send to printer
M502
M500

to update the eeprom

...didn't know it was possible to use decimals for max. speed? I had to use 2 mm/s for my i3 z-axis, because 3mm wasn't reliably working.

Yes decimals work , i had no problem with that . I think my ramps is the problem. When i set max feedrate like x axis it does not make a diverence but when i connect it to x axis they work fine so the motors are good.
