Answer to: 3 different stepper motor sizes.Jody, here is my talk with support, they are saying that it's normal... Me14:09 I'm building my new I3 and the Z axis stepper is not the shorter cable and the extruder one is. What should I do? the 2 steppers are not the same, can I switch them around? Me14:10 The extruder one does not have a pad, will that be an issue for the tube conextion? Jakub Stranel joined chat Jakub Stranel14:12 Hello Bounet, I think I know what happened, Just a moment, I have the proper guidance for you. Me14:13 OK. Jakub Stranel14:14 The printer kit you have has probably been shipped with a brand new set of motors that we will start despatching in January. They should be as follows: SX17-1005LQCEF (2x) = X,Y SX17-1003LQEF with longest cable = Extruder motor SX17-1003 (short cable) = Z1 SX17-1003LQEF (long cable) = Z2 Jakub Stranel14:15 It might that with the increased production and sales before Christmas the production team might have used those with a few kits already. I am sorry about any confusion. Seems like you received a bran...
Answer to: 3 different stepper motor sizes.I have the same issue and I also noticed that the shaft is different too with no pad on it. I'm in the middle of the build so it would be nice to know if I can continue this way (seems odd) or what to do instead.
