Hoi,
    Ondergetekende was al heeeel lang van plan, om eens iets te doen met stappen-motoren, maar het kwam er nooit van.
    Maar door het bekijken van jouw site, ben ik begonnen met het bouwen van een computer gestuurde schrijf-teken-frais plank.
    En OH wonder het functioneerd.
Er zijn best nog een hele hoop problemen te overwinnen, maar hij doet 't.
Dit wilde ik je ff vertellen.

Greetings from finland !!

I saw your wepsite and i notise that i got allmoust everything to make my own engraver.
So i start to build it and after few mounths its allmoust ready. i use only old parts and
example my computer is old 486 and i found least 5 years old kemo stepmotor cards. Mgui
is doing well job with them. Butt...
When i use *phase control* , my engravers Z-axis just dont move ?? X, Y working perfect.
If i use *pulse dir*, kemo parts lost the puls.

My Beauty is a quite massive, its a old drill table ( with x and y-axis ) weight least 65
kg !

I tried to get fotos for you. its HEAVY. Pure iron.

Could you please help me to end. How i get pulse to z-axis with *phase control* ??

Terveisin

Hello Luberth,

here is a little example of my home-built plotter/engraver. I can send you more photos and also my control program for Windows (with accurate timing!!),
which can draw or engrave HPGL files

Best regards

Hi,
Three months ago, I ventured throughout your website....

I quite agree about Roland and their wretched prices for an engraver.

So, I set out to build my own, with a wealth of inspiration from you.

Constructed, for under $250.00 US, and with the help of a local school's machine shop, I designed and built the gantry
type using mostly poarts from a Panasonic Copier Machine and Epson wide-carriage printers.

Please feel free to post these pictures on your site...perhaps they will also inspire others to build their own....and hopefully
defeat the capitolists who over-price them.

Thank you so much again...
(BTW - I use the Stepper3 and KCam version 4)

Dave

Dear sir,

I am about to commence my final year in a BEd in technology and design with education.  For my main personal project i
am going to ATTEMPT to design and manufacture a PCB drilling machine for small scale simple PCBS.  I  am wondering if
you would be willing to assist me in the design process?  I am not sure if you are aware of a piece of software call PCB
wizard, however, this the software that i ideally i would like the deice to operate from.  DO YOU THINK THIS IS
POSSIBLE? Can you help?

Thank you
