As far as I know, the current single diode max is around 6W. I guess if you push it you could call it 8W… 17W pulsed? maybe, but not very useful.
Optlasers.com has a 12W version made with 3 diodes that looks cool (but its expensive…).
I have their older 5W module (the CLH-5000), it does pretty much what they say it does. It will cut 6mm…[Read more]
I really hope it works.. I have been wanted to try a plasma cutter too. (actually have an old one that’s just sitting in a corner).
Ferrite cores on the cables perhaps ? (I have no idea if that would help in this case 😀 )
In series you still get max current with only one driver. I feel the steppers actually run smoother in series.
But of course there is no problem adding another driver, I’m sure it will work.
Just saying I don’t think it will be better than series.
I would be happy to fix up that extruder mount for you, but I’m currently on vacation for the next…[Read more]
It is a bit long for a slogan, perfect for mission statement 🙂
The Sienci does look like a good simple design, but wait I have the MPCNC, I can just cut the frame for Sienci myself 🙂
Then again I don’t really need one since I have the MPCNC… but if would be fun .. no no, no more machines, but…
I think I would rather build another MPCNC or…[Read more]
With that type of motor usually its either a loose magnet (you can usually feel that) or a bad bearing, which would be my guess. Those motors aren’t built for milling 🙂
If you are in europe I can recommend the Kress 800 or 1050, but it’s a bit above the 150$ I think.
and yes.. 0.2 mm is pretty low 🙂
