Stepper and vacuum breakout board

Post by Karl » Tue Aug 07, 2012 8:38 am

After being away on vacation I came home to a delivery of PCBs.

Here is the before and after pictures:

This will let me add an additional y-axis motor (to drive on both sides), a c-axis for rotation and a control of the solenoid valve for the vacuum.

Got the parts for an additional y-axis motor, so that is my next step.

Have now set it up with a second motor and I must say that the y-axis movement are much more reliable now...
