Newbie and a bit confused

I ordered a cohesion3d board and assorted other items last Friday. I am ready to order a Lightobject z-lift table today, and don’t know if I need a stepper driver, and if I should order it from Cohesion or Lightburn. The Cohesion motor is higher amps for a lower price, but being new to this, I wasn’t sure if it’s too much?

Hi John,

Welcome to the forum!

A number of our users have used the LightObject Z table directly with the LaserBoard. It appears that their small Z table uses a moderately sized Nema 17, which should be okay with the built in drivers. Other Z tables that use larger stepper motors will definitely require an external stepper driver.

This is covered in our Buyer’s Guide: https://cohesion3d.com/cohesion3d-laserboard-buyers-guide/

For more information, you can also see our doc on Setting Up a Z-Table.

Let us know if you have any questions.
