Thanks very much for huge and useful information to everybody here!
I’m a retired mechanical engineer from Istanbul, Turkey and planning to build a “portable cnc” to use even off grid places for my hobbies. Lowrider 2 CNC looks perfect for that, thanks for your efforts and studies for that Ryan!
BTW, making a CNC equipment is new for me and learning basics about that.
I have a question about electronics:
Planning to use Ramps 1.4+ Arduino Mega 2560 + Marlin configuration.
As I understand there are two possibility for step motors:
- Use three DRV8825 and serial cables for Y and Z axis
- Five DRV8825 and dedicate them one by one to 5 nema 17 step motors
