Printrboard Z axis not holding

by Generalx5

Hey everyone, I recently salvaged a printrboard Rev D from another printer...

And I'm running into issues with the Z motor not holding after a move command is given.

I have no firmware access, as I am unable to successfully compile on Arduino from numerous verify errors. So all changes need to be done by Gcode and saved using the M500 command.

Basically, X and Y after a move, holds its position, but the Z motor free rotates. This is immediately after a movement command.

Does anyone know whats wrong? Ive also swapped stepper motors and the result is the same for the Z axis.

This one is amazing and works great: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:507944
This one I haven't tried to attach yet, but it's made for the old wooden model, so not sure if it will fit mine: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:258459

Hey guys, I'm wondering if you can help me out with the parts I'll need to upgrade the 1405 model with double precision all 3 axis, as well as 200x200x200mm, and trirod mod. I know I need more bearings, and such, but I don't know all the specifics on what length the rods need to be and stuff like that? Thanks for any help!
