It looks like
Pin14 on the DB25 is X enable
pin 15 is A enable But 15 is not a valid output pin
16 is Z enable
17 is Y enable

And for A, step pin 5 direction pin 9
thats fine but were do I set the 14,16,17 enable


thanks

We better check the motor tuning page too.

config / motor tuning

I am assuming you are Metric ?

These should be safe for metric, we'll fix it later when you know what screws you are using.

Maybe the Enable will fix the one direction issue.

For imperial use these numbers for now. This would be for a 5TPI screw and 50 inches a minute rapids

Do you have a link to your motors ?
If they are 4 wire bi-polar and one direction works so should the other.
If they are 6 wire and you wired them for bi-polar, they may be wired wrong.
