Firmware: “I have a new board and I’m using whatever it came with”
Problem/ Question: I have a Z table in my K40 and have it attached to the Z axis on the Laserboard and it is rated for 1.7a so I have it set to 1.2 in the config based on this chart.
Should it be getting so hot that I cannot touch it? Is there a way to disengage the Z Axis in between move commands that it will not be powered up all the time. I rarely raise or lower it so there is no need to keep the motor energized all the time so that it gets hot.
This is the motor I have on the Z axis.
