First of all, I’d like to apologize if I was appearing pushy, I didn’t mean to. I’m myself also under a lot of pressure to make this work and I really appreciate you trying to help. You doing this alone is also something I didn’t know and that I respect. I’ll make my peace that it will take the time it needs to work.
I also think of myself as someone organizes, this is why I’m very peculiar with my questions, making sure I order everything right and that I’m correctly prepared once I receive everything and that I don’t lose another 20 days in delivery and customs and another 5 days in a obscure (for me) config file, the the time difference not helping. Preparation is key, especially when one is not electronics-enclined. I also read most of your documentation and FAQ, fyi.
That said, let’s go back to the issue at hand.
Yes, it seems I have the same sensors as Serge, I hope I won’t have the same issues:
I also took the liberty to take pictures of the rest of the machine:
Be sure to pick up the external driver cables just in case.
This is a good suggestion.
Why would I need the stepper driver cables without the stepper driver itself ? I’m not sure I’m following.
You need to plan to set aside time to work through any issues.
You’re totally right and that’s exactly because I know I’ll spend hours on this that I anticipate as much as possible any issue/special configuration that might occur.
One last note is that this video is a great resource in general, and also with regard to the specifics of modifying the board configuration file for larger machines such as yours:
I’ve already watched this one, also very helpful.
To recap, what I need to buy for sure is:
- The laser board (with PSU included)
- USB cable
- Stepper driver cables (for an unknown reason to me atm)
- 2 microswitches to eventually replace the ones I have right now in case of issue.
Am I correct?
