Here is the old text:

The anet A8 uses Nema17 size stepper motors generic information about these motors can be found here. Unfortunately there it is not clear which manufacturer this stepper came from. Therefore the mechanical and electrical parameters are missing. Based on user experience the following data has been collected.

Current:

currentvoltageDRV8825Result
1.4 A0.75 Vworking for x,y and z axis
1.6 A0.8 Vworking for extruder
2 A1.0 Vworking but motor got so hot that acrylic support deformed
