Z axis turning metal rod

Postby chengl03 » Wed Aug 30, 2017 5:34 am

Hello all,

So, just a question. Is it normal for the Z axis rod be able to turn by hand? Because on mine, I can turn it if I just put some pressure to it, did it by accident when wiping off lube to put new lube on.

Yes, completely normal in the stepper disabled state.
