    ok very weird problem

    when i try to move one of the extruder motors, the z axis instead moves about 4mm and then stops, this is for both extruders.

    wiring has been double checked and is correct, as is the motion of the z axis when i actually try to move the z axis
    any ideas ?

    Can you post a picture of your wiring?

    This is normal behaviour when trying a cold extrude. Heat up before using the extruders!
