@zhivko nope, no cape, just a quick protoboard with the pins soldered... i'm checking with a multimeter, and i do see the pin go hi when i first turn on the BB, and then as soon as machinekit starts it goes low, but never changes... it's got to be something with my config, my ini or hal or setup.sh file? i'll post them maybe it can offer a hint...

Do you have scope have you testing right pins?
Joem
@mosfet
Apr 02 2017 17:21
i have the ability to test the pins, as shown when i see the step pin toggle
zhivko
@zhivko
Apr 02 2017 17:22
So step pin is tgogling or not?
Shown where?
Joem
@mosfet
Apr 02 2017 17:22
yes, step pin toggles, as shown on my multimeter
zhivko
@zhivko
Apr 02 2017 17:22
Whats the problem then?
I understood pins are not toggling
Joem
@mosfet
Apr 02 2017 17:23
yep, just the direction pins
step pins = good, direction pins = stay low
my relay pins work
my input pins work for estop and probe
just the darn direction pins! i even tried on a different pin, maybe the pin was in use or something

This is really strange

i tried all three pull-up resistor modes, high, low, out
i have not tried inverting them, but that should only change the direction not make it go just one direction
the GDI shows the tool going both directions, and the DRO goes both + and -, so it thinks its working

Have you check dir pin is among out pins in hal ?
Also setup.sh must lis out pin I think
Joem
@mosfet
Apr 02 2017 17:28
i think they're fine, i set both hal and setup.sh up with the pin#s
(both are in the gist i pasted above)
perhaps i should just start the configuration process over from a fresh cramps.ini/hal file
zhivko
@zhivko
Apr 02 2017 17:33
Yes
Take orig cramps.ini
And hal
And confirm toggling works there
