I've hit a weight limit with Axis 3 (it is skipping steps).
I'm looking at ways to reduce the total load by changing out tools but tomorrow I'm going to check if I can swap out the J3 Nema 17 motor with a J2 Nema 23 motor for some extra oompf.
I've done some quick measurements and at first glance it seems like a nema 23 might fit the frame but wanted to run it by you before I dig into too much.
Does this seem like a reasonable idea? And do you know if there is clearance for the Nema 23 motor?
PS: As an update I have finished installing the AR2 upside down (inverted). It has been hanging for a few days now and is doing great. I had to flip some of the motor directions as you mentioned but it went off pretty damn smooth all things considered. Will post some more information later.
P.S.S: I've also run it at a higher amperage which I will experiment with further tomorrow. It gets a bit more power but have you experimented with increasing the amp's over the specified?
