    I went back to the old firmware. I'm starting to think the driver may be getting weak. I upped the voltage to .8 and it's runs the first 3 layers fine then it doesn't want to go any further up. Yet when I send it commands through mattercontrol it raises just fine, or through the lcd.

    Heat is the death of stepper drivers and they put out a lot of heat in that tiny little chip. Sad part is that the heat is dissipated through the circuit board not through the top of the chip.

    I've had a 60 mm fan on the board since day 1. But all good things must end as they say.
    But I prefer the Frankenstein approach, give it new life! Muhahahahaha!

    I'm think I'm going to upgrade my board to a skr mini e3 w/TSMC2209 drivers.

    Is it possible to tell which firmware your Robo R1 is running? I flashed it many years ago and I have no clue whats on there now. Debating on if I want to attempt Marlin 2.0. Sounds complicated to me....

    Not really, but if you are on stock then we can figure out what version it is.
    If it is a stock R1/R1+ it is on Marlin 1.0.x (the exact "x" value will vary depending on any updates or which printer model).

    Could you upload the firmware you are using? Also what arduino version are you using?

    Installed this firmware, but having the same problem as all the other firmwares I install. For some reason the left z stepper goes up and the right z stepper goes down. Any idea what is causing this? I plugged the board up exactly like the diagram shows on the main robo site.

    If it’s an R1+ then your stepper is plugged in upside down. Whichever one is going the wrong direction flip the connector on the board
