Re: DC Motor control from Gen6 Electronics
Thanks for your reply. I have been looking at stepper motors that could replace the GM3 motor I originally have. The extruder i have built is the ponoko laser cut reprap extruder. If i can find a stepper motor which is small and yet powerful enough to replace it then I am laughing. If anyone has done this upgrade please let me know as I would like to know which stepper motor you used. I agree that the stepper motor extruder gives much better control. The trouble is I am nearing completion of the project so need a motor ASAP!
I didnt know which electronics driver board I would be using when I started so I kept everything standard to the instructions. oh well only £8 down the drain and I can use the GM3 for something else...
Which stepper motor to use that will fit comfortably and be powrful enough?
The below link is the one which i have built...http://reprap.org/wiki/PonokoExtruderAssembly
Many thanks and any further help is much appreciated.
