DC Motor Control?

  • Hey guys, I am installing a Duet WiFi on an old Dimension Elite that I am refurbishing. I want to keep the original hotend and extruders, but they are run by a DC motor and encoder system instead of a stepper motor.

    Any ideas for how I could control these? I doubt I can do it with the Duet alone, are there any daughterboards that may do this?

    I think there is at least one design based on the Arduino Micro that uses step and direction signals to control a DC motor + encoder.
