The functioning and the connections of a stepper motor are simple concepts deeply.There are different types of stepper motors. In 3D printing the most used are "Hybrid Stepper Motor", with two phases and 4 connections; which combines the features of "Variable Reluctance Motor" and "Permanent Magnetizing Motor"In this video we can see the types ..
What is to crimp? It is called crimp to the cable splicing procedure, especially used for telephone connectors. Crimper, is the tool used to crimp or corrugate two metal pieces and other malleable materials by deformation of one or both pieces. This deformation will keep them together in a very safe way. Using this system instead of weldin..
Our 3D printer, as every machine, needs a maintenance. One of the most basic ones is the change of the nozzle of our hotend. We may need to change it for several reasons, as for example, needing a smaller or bigger diameter (as bigger diameters are better for resistent parts with few details and fast printings and small diameters are better for sma..
What you need to know about TMC2130These are controllers for stepper motors designed by Trinamic (from Germany) especially for 3D printing.They are very advanced drivers that include first class technologies at a very affordable price. They can also easily replace the DRV8825 and A4988.They include the following technologies:SPIStep/DirMicrostep ta..
How to print PLA? PLA filament is undoubtedly the easiest and the most popular filament. Thus, nowadays it is more than the 80% of the total of manufactured filaments for 3D printers.PLA (polylactic acid) is produced from lactic acid, which is obtained from corn starch, cassava, or sugar cane. Among its advantages we can point out:It m..
