Just getting my v90 and have done some initial cuts, and they look pretty good. What I am wondering though is about optimum cutting feeds/speeds based on bit sizes. Is there a particular resource available that allows for the specification of the type of material, bit details and gives optimum cutti...

Re: MondoStep Thoughts with a Planet-CNC MK2/4

Thanks for the information, very helpful. In reviewing the diagrams ( X3_conversion_kit_wiring_diagram.pdf and 8wire_to_4wire_bipolar.pdf ) they seem to indicate different motor phases. Will this make a difference when installed, or will the motors just spin the opposite direction? The differences w...

MondoStep Thoughts with a Planet-CNC MK2/4

Looking for some guidance.

Wondering if there is anyone out there running a machine with a Planet-CNC MK2/4 controller and one of the MondoStep drivers? I am considering this to drive my V90 with yellow steppers (280 OzIn 8-wires steppers) with the 40v linear power supply.

Thoughts?

FireBall V90 with Planet-CNC Mk2/4 Controller Setup?

Just getting around to setting up my V90 with the Planet-CNC Mk2/4 controller. Wondering if there is a fast-track set of settings available for use with this controller already designed for use with the V90 to start my configuration from?

Thanks.. John
