Actually this is the 3rd iteration of this machine. The previous version use the standard 6 mm belts and they weren't strong enough we stripped a few teeth off of them at 1.6 ampsI don’t believe anything has been printed on this mega fast machine.
We are now running 12 mm belts on everything with the 148 oz in servos.
I could also see the harmonic from running the y-axis belt on the tooth side so I am now running it smooth side cross two points before it moves the hot end.
Now we should be good to run them at the full 2.8 amps.
Rigidity is everything.
I have all the wiring for the hot end I'm finishing making the chain way for the new Hemera carriage.
I should also note that you need to be really careful. Early on with this new build I kind of goofed during homing.... bent the two X limit switch brackets made out of angle auminum.... like they were paper.... before the windings melted....
Always be careful where your arms and fingers are
