What are the relative merits of steppers versus servos? Let's assume that comparable torque rated units and their associated Gecko drives/amps are available for roughly the same price (my example -- 520 in. oz steppers/600 in. oz servos).
Are servos capable of faster and more accurate movement to a great degree ( especially with 3d contouring)?
What are the dependencies in the way of software, computer hardware?
I will be using Visualmill 4.0, Mach 1, and a 1 Ghz Pentium III class cpu.
Of course 3 more cables are required... that is no biggy to me).
Your collective thoughts please?
