That worked! My CNC Plotter works perfectly now, it's a really awesome project, thanks again!
Hi, I have a problem with the stepper motors, I got two 17hs3430 from AliExpress exactly as suggested, and two Big EasyDriver. When I try the program, the steppers seem to move randomly, especially when I try to move them using the G00 command they don't move correctly or at all. I'm not sure if the cause of this behavior is because the motors are broken or because or something else. They seem to have very little torque when they (almost randomly) move. The rest of the machine seems to be constructed correctly: if I move the motor manually the movement of the pen is correct, but the motors are so weak that they can't move the pen at all. Any suggestion is more then welcome.

It does, thanks!
Thanks! I'll keep you posted, I'm pretty sure I'll have some other questions in the future ;)
I'm having some issues understanding the distance of the pulleys/motors from the borders, you wrote:Drill two 4mm holes for the fixed pulleys. These holes are located 25mm from the opposite end to the motors and 40.5mm from the side rails. but the distance of the motors from the border are 25mm each side, so that would mean that the motors and the pulley have different distances from the side rails. I'm attaching a little drawing to try yo understand what I think is correct, but I still don't get one measure (see the ? in the picture). Can you tell me what I'm missing?
Another question: is 16 gauge aluminium sheet going to be enough? I'm having a hard time finding the 18 gauge.

Hi! Awesome project! I have a question for you: what is the bore I need to select for the 2GT Idler Pulley? I can select 3, 4 or 5 mm, and I can't find the correct bore size in the description. Thanks!
