Re: Another rebuild

AN update, so far I have the gantry frame built, ready for the Z and X rails to be fitted, also have the X Z base plate built with bearings and the spindle bracket. Probably will not get back to it until after Easter.
Hoping that Bertus has made progress on the 5 axis board. :D

Re: Another rebuild

Hi Derfarm that sounds interesting, could you explain it a little more, the link only showed an image, will this work with more than one set of motors ie. the Y and the Z, or will only work like the present system Z+A. I just looked back on one of your other posts, It seems that you ran the wires fr...

Re: Another rebuild

OK Bertus, Of course I would like to stay with your system, if you are planning an update, and of course it is not to far away, I will not be in any hurry to get this up and running, I need to make sure that everything is spot on. I did have the two motors running the Z axis on the last model, didn'...

Another rebuild

OK Bertus, you answered a couple of questions on the V 2.58 page. I mentioned that the new machine would be 1 meter X 900. For ease of construction, the X axis rises and lowers with the Z axis, so this is an added weight, so I have a motor on each side, they are run on individual drivers, so Z is cl...

Re: Another rebuild

Thanks Bertus, but this was put here by mistake it was meant for v2.60, but it seems to have been removed from there, there were far more questions needing answers there. I already have the v 2.60 with external drivers.
It seems a poor show removing the correct message.

Another rebuild

Hi All, It's that time again, another rebuild, this time it is from the bottom up. I have some questions. 1) Re ball screws, how good are they, are there any disadvantages in using them. 2) In my previous models I used Nema 23 steppers, are these going to be strong enough. In the past I have had al ...

Re: The documentation is so bad...

Well I must say, the fuss over this lack of documentation is rather negative, try buying one of the Chinese products out there, and you would praise Bertus's effort, because documentation is nil, and it takes a lot more setting up than the Pihat.
Another plus is you get genuine software.

Re: Connect a laser

I must say, that if one can't get an answer to a simple question, then it is time to move on to a system that does.
