Can I use an aluminum plate, as an alternative to the steel plate, to reduce weight? What would the impact be?
Thank you for sharing, I'm also interested in building one, and this helped a lot. Do you know if this, or a similar implementation, can be controlled by a stepper motor driver? I would like to use the Duet2 to drive it. The Duet2 uses the TMC2660 stepper drivers. If needed, I can adjust my version to support the TMC2660 , but waned to know if conceptually it would work.
