https://github.com/danithebest91/ServoStrap/blob/master/Arduino_stepper_motor_emulator_v1.0.1_direct_port_manipulation.pde K so I found this. Kan someone help me figure out how to apply this to the current generation of 3d printer electronics? ramps or ultiboard, or marlin in general. I am trying, but my arduino programming skills are non existent!

Wow this really cool. I now on my TODO list for later.

I have reviewed the code: You need to use direct port manipulation code and most likely you will need to tune the KP,KD,KI values by sending them through a serial port to the board (you may use SoftwareSerial to send data to each motor driver using a different Mega pin).

I would look at the cost for servos with enough motive force to replace stepper motors, to check that the range of motion (limiting build area) and torque (limiting hotend mass and build transfer rates) are advantageous at or near the same price point. Almost any form of robotic limb can serve to transit the build volume, we just see the same thee formats of 3D printers (Cartesian, Delta. and Polar) due to the cost-ratios of the more complex systems.

@Kalani_Hausman if you look at my profile you will see my new bot. I want to use 24v or 12v dc brushless motors with high res optical disc encoders like or from standard 2d printers. My bot is using 1204 sfu c5 ground ball screws the translation of motion in the form of a highly efficient screw will handle most of the torque issues while adding resolution. The higher acceleration rates and speeds of a dc will bring this machine into more realistic velocities.
