Quote from: Hozza on May 12, 2018, 10:06:40 pmThanks for you input mate, it's great when a community can share knowledge and help each other Well I had thought if all pulleys were the same size then theoretically I'm keeping a 1:1 ratio so only have to work out the steps required for the lead screw movement. But I'm not entirely sure.

Quote from: Hozza on May 13, 2018, 11:50:50 amThanks for the input...Doug I had already decided on TR8*2, I have either got to run the pair with the motors in parallel (which can cause a step jump issue when powering up the duet 0.6 I have read) or one and drive them via a belt system. Definitely look at gates belts if I go that route.
Quote from: Hozza on May 13, 2018, 12:08:18 pmI'm basing mine around the HEVO, I've built a corexy before I wanted a small printer and I went too small so sold it.As for benefits I have no idea just want something different Sorry should have gone in my own post rather than this deleted and will raise a new one
Quote from: Hozza on May 13, 2018, 03:29:53 pmCheers for that Doug, good to know the HEVO is a good choice. Must admit I wouldn't mind getting my hands on some of the STL files for the zbot.
