Finished the build and loaded the marlin firmware. downloaded and installed repetier and turned on the printer. laptop shut down. 9 volts measured from printer thru cable... triple checked my wiring. and tuned stepers. wtf!!
Working with Folgertech support team. Hopefully resolved quickly.
Still working through, but Folgertech support has been great. looked like a short with a couple of the board mounting screws. Got the bed moving in the X and Y, nothing moving on Z yet.
x y are homing.. z, still nothing..runaway heater on the bed.
Swapped driver on Z, now working.. heater runaway issue is gone.. no clue what happened there... something is going on with the y stage, may just be belt/alignment.. but I'm pushing plastic!!!!
