Hey guys, I am new to the site, i have had some electronics experience and i have a BS in Manufacturing Engineering, and i have worked with some CNC machines on campus and i decided i want to build my own.
Here is what i have for stepper motors, they are what i could find locally, and they were really cheap, but so far it seems like no one makes a controller board for a reasonable price for the 5 wire motor.
I am making a machine that is about 24" x 18" right now, just as a trial machine, and if everything works correctly, i plan on going really big, like a 3' x 6' or something very large.
I am looking for the correct controller card, or kit, or something to control 3 of these motors. I was planning on using Mach 3 as the controlling software. Any help or input is greatly appreciated.
