Alternative Driver board?

Postby 3DFrost » Sat Sep 01, 2012 4:34 pm

I was looking around at the various means of controlling my 3D printer when I came across this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1-set-x-5-axis- ... 3a78f33b46

Definitely a lot cheaper than a TB6560 controlled board, but I'm wondering if the power output power is enough.
Any thoughts?

That's ONLY a logic interface board, it's incapable of driving any kind of motor directly. The separate drivers for each motor are not included and need to be purchased to have a working solution.

Ah, ok that would make sense given the lower power consumption.

Hi everybody,

I dig up this old post to say that I'd devellopped my own board.
this is a very simple board, based on PIC programmed in C.

its design, as the SW is available on my web site.

Google translator will surely helps non french readers.
