First off - Amazingly cool concept!

I ordered a few of these boards and haven't found a definitive wire guide. I attempted to drive one axis using a DRV8825 IC but could not get the magnet to move.

I don't know if it is because:

1. I wired it wrong

2. I am using the wrong type of magnet (~5mm and unknown composition)

I am concerned the DRV8825 might not be a good fit as a driver, its minimum voltage is 8.5V. It didn't seem to make the PCB hot (although it did warm up!).

Thanks for sharing such a fun concept to play with!
