My friend has a K40 like machine, just bigger. 40 x 50 cms work area, adjustable bed and much more room to accomodate a roller rotary attachment. It’s being controlled with a Minigerbil 3 and Lightburn.
His current rotary was built my me, using an Amazon bought roller system and replacing the original stepper motor with one we took from an actual K40. We managed to make a removable connection using aviator plugs, so he can swap easily between the rotary and the Y gantry axis.
It works fine, but we want to move to a chuck type rotary.
So, we came upon the Atomstack R1 rotary, which is meant to be used on their diode systems. Could this small rotary be plugged directly to the Y axis terminal on the MG3?
We do really really want to avoid having to install a separate stepper driver
Thanks in advance
