Unique NEMA 17 stepper motor application

Recommended Posts

I am new to the 3D printing world so I have been playing catch up and reading a lot on stepper motors. I have a bunch of Minebea Nema 17 hybrid 1.8 degree motors. 280 mNm/ 39.66ozin. I believe what makes them so unique is that they have a rated current of 0.3A. I haven't seen many other motors with this amperage. Is there an application for these motors? Could you use them in a printer build? Any info would be really appreciated. Thanks so much.

Pete

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
