General Discussion / Re: Stepper motor Nema 23 connecting
« on: March 04, 2018, 01:22:47 AM »
Okay I did found out by my selv surfing the net  :)

Now it is running smoothly both as x-axe or y-axe

By messuring the resistent on the wires I found the A and B pairs for the coils

General Discussion / Stepper motor Nema 23 connecting
« on: March 03, 2018, 10:50:29 AM »

I have this eleksmana board 3 axe

and a Nema 23 stepper motor in this rotary tool

It comes without a connector so just to be sure

The stepper motor have 4 wires but I am not 100% how to solder the wires to the connector 4-pin
Red, yellow, blue, green

What is the correct connection (i could guess that is is the same as my Eleksmana steppers)

I think that this datasheet for the Nema 23 is the correct one saying that it draws 2.5A and the board can draw 2A
Is it a problem drawing this Nema 23 motor?

Great if you can  :)

Have someone experimenting using a milling tool in a rotary setup for engraving glass?

When I get my rotary tool from china I will try it out  :)

hi zax, thanks

I am not that good when we at talking elektronik wirering

so just wire the limit switch to d9 + ground and d10 + ground?

now lets say that x hits the limit switch then x will reverse some mm?

I have just order limit switches , is there a good diagram for the connection?

I have a EleksMana 3 axes board and I don't need the home funktionality, just limit controls for x and Y

I applied 2 drops of oil into the gear, and now it works smoothly  :)

EleksMaker IV Axis / Connecting 2 and 3 axes boards
« on: February 07, 2018, 01:31:55 AM »

Now I have a 2 axes and a 3 axes board , both EleksMaker

I was thinking of bridge the two together so I have at least a 4 axes to work with.

I am looking for a rotary setup so I can keep my z-axes

Is this any good?

I have one installet on my A3 laser from banggood, works very well but is heavy, so when I don't use the laser I support the z axes so that it don't twist my x-axes, well I don't know if it will twist the x-axes, just to be sure  :)

That is correct. Trace and Engrave Frame features are disabled for CNC mode.

It is deliberate and was done for safety reasons but would be very easy to change, perhaps I could allow trace frame (spindle off) at Z-safe as a compromise?

Hi Zax

I could be nice if we just could trace the frame with Z-safe settings, maybe with a warning.

thanks for good support

About tracing frame

I am trying to use T2 as a cnc milling tool, when I set the Z >0 then I can't trace the frame. I need to deselect cnc mode before I can trace the frame?

When I tried to plug a servo straight into the mana board I couldn't get it to do anything except buzz and lock up, no matter what s value I used. How does it work?

Start using small values for the servo


I am using the serverport when draving (3D printed my ovn pen holder)

Well a new 3-axe board cost only 30 USD  :)
