Re: Z-Axis Stepper Cooling - Ideas?

Have you checked the z-axis current setting? It's on the g-shield board, small green square with a white dot in the middle. Pick the one nearest to the Z axis mark.

Re: What do I do with all these wires?

Ah this is good. Drag Chain, yes, one is included in the ShapeOko 2 kit, but probably need another one. 1 is for the X-axis, the included one for the Y axis.

Re: What do I do with all these wires?

I'm interested in this too. I currently wire the motor cables to a terminal on the mounting plate. Then I run a shielded cable sheathed in cable braid to the controller. Doing so creates a strain on the cable from the terminal to the controller. A cable track is included to avoid the strain, I've no...
