I have a spare servo motor laying around together with encoder and driver that I havent used. I have lately thought about setting it up on my cnc and mount a saw blade on to it. My plan is to use the spindle speed display in mach3 so that I can controll the speed of the blade. Is this even possible? Only other option is setting it up like the other axies and just ajust the motor speed as normal. But it could be kinda cool to have it running as a normal spindle. It might not have suficient tourqe when it comes to the end, but I recond itīs worth a try..
Is it just adding the step and dir under the spindle under ports and pins, or does it need more ajusting?
Has anyone tries this and know how to setup this?
