Very weird ... I have wifi, have webpage, can click and it loads the page.
But motor is not energized or moving what so ever, tried different (new) MCU and stepper driver and all, same result, anyone can hint me ?
Used the other correct wire scheme with the cap and extra wire and all also tried slightly higher voltage ... maybe something in the code ?

hello novaspirit

could you tell me how install and where i can find app for smatphone to manipulate a slider.
big thanks

It's not an app it's just a webpage:

My stepper motor does not get enough power to pull the tray!
Does anybody know what the Problem could be?

I use this Motor: http://www.ebay.de/itm/DE-Ship-5pcs-Nema-17-Stepper-Motor-59Ncm-84oz-in-Bipolar-4-lead-3D-Printer-CNC-/231471243982?hash=item35e4c2e2ce:g:Y1QAAOSwgQ9VkRDh

Maybe the wiring?

Having the same issue but I was very diligent on the wiring so I don't think that's the cause for me. Any chance you figured this one out yet?

Hello, great work, any way to have a the LMUs full covered with plastic around? or being locked with zipties?

Any chance you can share the CAD files? I need to make a small modification to fit some existing pieces.

Also, I think the rail diameter is 5/16" not 5/8", can you confirm?

Thanks again for sharing.

you are right, 5/16 opp, i will post the cad file when i get home.

Awesome, thanks so much. Looking forward to putting this together.

how long are the rails that you use?

Where can i set the rail lengt? mine has 975mm

find in code: const int sliderWidth = 3200; //2' slider

I've been thinking about doing this for my IP Pan / Tilt Camera. You've saved me a job! Thanks for sharing.
