    As for the stepper wire colors -- good luck :)
    This is how they NORMALLY go and if you are lucky the Chinese ones on the Robo are wired in a normal way

    Fortunately I took pics of the connectors before disconnecting any of them from the Marlin, and I labelled each bundle. So at least I have a record of which connectors where connected to which pins on the original board. I'm going to put my faith in the Marlin and Duet boards being labelled correctly on the PCB and attach them in the same orientation, colours be damned.

    Thank you profusely for all of those images. I think if I had had some of those before, I might have simply stuck with the Marlin. I didn't know it had a screen connector built in! o_O

    But in for a penny, in for a punt... hopefully I'll post tomorrow with some happy news!

    Generally if you get the stepper motor wires reversed then the motor just runs backwards and that is an easy fix :)

    Yeah, but getting ZA and ZB going in opposite directions might do some damage! :eek:

    Well, it would be an interesting science experiment for certain ;)
