Acorn and Clearpath

I have been reviewing this setup.

I think this is a good next step combination for the MechMate.

I still think our current systems are very reliable, cost effective and available, this is just another solid option.

Wonderful. Are you using the Clearpath servos? If you don't mind sharing, which specific products are you going with?

Not going with the clearpath servos just going with motionking 34H2A9840 steppers. I like the idea of a supported software/controller system. I shall post something when I get my electronics and start playing.

I’m gonna build with the acorn and clear path. Still trying to determine which motors to buy from techniq though. I’m open to input, and I’m re reading William t’s thread to get a better ide. I’m pretty sure they will need to be the Nema 23’s with the 1-4 gear, but again, I’m open to suggestions.

I think you are on the right path. I hope William can give us some photos of his motor drive and belt reduction setup. I would like to be able to build up a new set of electrical control box schematics around the Teknic/Acorn combination.
