Re: eShapeoko recomented microsteps and steps/mm for accurac

If your steppers are rated at 5%, then 1/8 step. Anything above this is phantom resolution.

43.788 for X and Y

800 for Z

Re: Inductive limit switch 3 wire

These are pretty standard for auto bed leveling in the reprap world. I too have been toying with the idea of using these as endstops lately.

They like 12V, but you could voltage divide the output down to 3.3V.

Re: Well I give up

No. The same way an F117 and an A300 are not the same thing. Both are airplanes, but have wildly different abilities. The panucatt is designed to sink the heat away from the driver and dissipate it properly. The pololu's simply are not. They want you to stick a heatsink to the IC case and keep the h...

Re: Anybody willing to 3d print .

The video is the shapeoko milling some parts for my new 3d printer. I pulled the scope out to try and show the setup. Video is kinda crappy. :(

The dust shoe itself is 3d printed in green abs.

And I agree 100%. Use the machine to improve the machine.
