I found AvidCNC and I do like their machine kits. I am interested in the 5’ x 10’ cutting area one:
However, their CNC machines uses NEMA 23 (3/8" shaft compatible) or NEMA 34 stepper motors (1/2" shaft compatible). Are those motors too powerful for a smoothieboard? What would I need to make this work?
Additionally, what can I use as limit switches?
I’m asking these questions because it would be nice to save money in the controller and software components.
