    I am going to be using a RAMPS1.4 with DRV8825 stepper drivers to control my Root3 since I have a several spares in hand for my 3d printers.

    How are people wiring up the dual Y steppers to the RAMPS board, are you using two separate drivers, connecting the steppers in either serial/parallel to 1 driver?

    First of all you need to enable it in the configuration files.

    define Y_DUAL_STEPPER_DRIVERS

    Then yop put another driver in the E0 socket (beside the extruder) and wire the second stepper there.

    You must check if you need to inverse the rotation in the config file for the second stepper
