Electronics for homemade CNC machine
October 2, 2013
I plan to build CNC machine. I have already found 3 unipolar stepper motor from old printer.
Type of CNC will be like http://reprap.org/wiki/WolfStrap-English#WolfStrap-Fran.C3.A7ais
For electronic part I have two options:
- L298 driver (3psc=12.48$) + Arduino Mega (14$) from aliexpress.com In addition I don’t any information about any other complete solutions for arduino. Could you please advice if you know or have experience in this subject?
- 3 Axis TB6560 3.5A 16 Segments CNC stepper motor driver from (40$) http://www.aliexpress.com/item/3-Axis-Stepper-Driver-Controller-stepping-motor-Driver-Board-TB6560-UC045/327355240.html
Please help me, and give me some advice which option is better, based on your experience? I liked the first option, because it is based on arduino.
