I’ve finished assembling the frame and gantry, and I’m now starting on the wiring. anyone have any pictures of their wiring layout ? I’ve never wired up something like this and need some guidance on wire management.
I’m using cat 5 stranded with the pairs twisted together and crimped into Dupont pins. The steppers have single shell males and my connecting cables will have 4 pin shells with female pins. I currently have the frame sitting on a 30 1/2" square table, with 2 sides slid back 6" on their tubes.
Before I get too far, what is the orientation of the gantry? Tool mount plate facing left front or right front, or does it matter?
And, finally, I’m using ramps 1.4 and 12vdc .4a NEMA 17’s. Which stepper config is best Series or parallel?
