Hi Jerry,

I guess the biggest question is, are you still loosing steps or has that problem went away? We only needed a fan because we are pushing the nema 17 with higher amps then what the ratings are so it's very responsive to the movement and changes in directions.

Jeff
It is looking real good but I do think it was the stepper driver that was my problem. That flex coupling probably broke when I was running the Acceleration to high. When I first hooked it up I got stupid. You ever got stupid ? its sort of fun. I ran it all day yesterday and didn't loose a step in A
Thanks again
Jerry

Stupid is my middle name Jerry. Making a bunch of stupid mistakes and learning not to do them again is how I became an expert. :ap)

I "became an expert" by making lots of mistakes, and not telling others when I repeated them. :rotfl)

I didn't fix it but it's running great, by the way what's PEP? I'm still trying to figure out that depth map.

Jerry,
Jeff's reference to PEP (PicEngrave Pro) was a private dig at me. Not directed to you. :lol:
