Got a new X5SA coming (the newer 2019 version) , I was going to custom build one, but for sale price of $220 bucks you just cant beat it. Plan to get the SKR1.3 for it and few other things planned.
Has anyone had any luck with direct extrusion?
Thanks in advance =).
Well I well check the one that comes with the TronXY, but generally speaking the controllers that come with most printers are garbage. Although I notice this one is 32 bit I doubt the step drivers are decent. So I noramlly use an SKR 1.3 with 2208 UART drivers.
Looks like they still have a couple left.https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000183289469.html?spm=a2g0s.9042322.214.171.124cd34c4dudY9lR
You select the option for the ones coming out of the USA.
interested idea what you did their, ive though of doing something similar to my ender5 . Trick to direct extrusion is a light step motor and a light extruder if your going to do it. Otherwise it adds alot of weight like you said. Course its still weight either way.
Thanks for the link I am going look at that later in more detail.
305 USD now which is way over priced.
