Hello CNC people,
I am building a mantis CNC mill, and i have some nema 17 stepper motors that control my axis. I have a probotix PBX-2 board, and i was wondering if anyone could enlighten me as to how i might attach the 6 wires on my stepper motors to this control board or if you have any other cheap alternatives. I just recently graduated with a degree in electrical engineering and have a host of components and equipment at my disposal to build things from scratch if need be.
here is the link to the controller board http://makeyourbot.org/3axisparallel-1-0
I was planning to use the probotix board merely as my parallel port to output connections as my attempts to drill and mount a parallel port to copper board or perf board proved unsuccessful.
I await any answers and thank you all in advance.
I forgot to mention these are unipolar steppers not bipolar.
