    Hello people!

    Great to be here and make this cool project! Because of the out of stock stepper motors I had to search it in another way. I have ordered stepper motors form AliExpress but not received the motors with the specs as mentioned on this site. Before I start assemble the LowRider, will this be a problem?

    I have received the 17HS15-1704S motors.

    Thanks for the upcoming answers!

    Those are 36Ncm/49ozin holding torque, which is just over half the recommended 59Ncm/83ozin motors. Thats a significant reduction.

    It’s hard to say for sure, but you’ll have to adjust the drivers down to reduce heat and you’ll skip steps earlier. If it was 10% diff, I would say go for it, but almost half? I would be looking for more.
