I am currently planning and building a 300x300x300 CoreXY Printer (derived from Railcore II prinziple).
First thing whilst doing planning was to build up the upper part of the frame to figure out the XY-Kinematics.
To keep spirits up i would realy like to move X-/Y-axis around as a test. Following are some questions prior to my tests as i want to make sure to not make expensive errors.
I want to do a minimalistic setup to basically just put in steppers for X and Y axis. Furthermore i could put in 3 steppers for the Z-Axis (those would be not connected to the mechanics so far). No endstops, no extruder, no heaters, no temperature sensors.
I tried to build that up in the Reprap-Firmware configurator and it came out like this:
0_1559554178871_config.g 8_1559554190329_stop.g 7_1559554190329_sleep.g 6_1559554190329_resume.g 5_1559554190329_pause.g 4_1559554190329_homez.g 3_1559554190329_homey.g 2_1559554190329_homex.g 1_1559554190329_homeall.g 0_1559554190329_bed.g
Could anybody please have a look it those files are plausible and good to go for my minimalistic approach?
The steppers i am speaking of are as following:
ACT 17HM5424 Hybrid
0,9 ° per Step,
0,8 A per Phase
0,8 Ohm per Phase
So my next question is: Do i put 800 mA or 1600 mA in for the Motor Current (M906)?
In my config above i put in 1600 mA as it s two phases (2 * 800 mA). Is that correct?
Thank you very much in advance.
