Thread: Twin X axis Drives
Currently building medium size wood router and will be using twin stepper motor drives on X axis, can any body give me advice on how stable this configuration will be. Effects of missed steps and any other bogies. I'm using Mach 3 and have slaved X&A axis together, I will be using the Gecko G540 drive.. Any help,advice or previous experiences will be gratefully received....
Am I the only person in the universe using R&P? It is so simple to set up, gives high speeds while keeping the stepper speed low and therefore high torque and no missed steps.
PS, any pics of your build????Nothing is foolproof......to a sufficiently talented fool!
Thanks for input smiler, I'm pretty much committed to twin drives at this time but if things do go pear shaped i'll think about doing the mod you suggested, maybe even R&P. Have attached a couple of pics to show progress...Rod
That looks like a really nice build you have going. Please consider starting a build thread. I'm slightly taken aback at how similar both our designs are :)
What materials are you using for the framework and the gantry and what sort of size bed etc? Enquiring minds need to know....;)
I'm just about to start building my main support frame. Heavy section channels and angle to increase rigidity.
Thanks for the photos anyway.

Rod, that is a very nice build. Please more information and pictures.
