Extruder Stepper motor

Recommended Posts

Posted · Extruder Stepper motor

Just a question about the stepper motor drivers.

Are the ultimaker electronics running the stepper motor drivers in "voltage mode" or "current mode" ?

Im not really an electronics guy, so have no idea about this.

Current mode. The pots on the drivers adjust the amount of current.

5000rpm is very VERY high for steppers, not sure if those motors are up to that. But I think the electronics could manage it.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
