I’m going to replace steppers from 17HS4401 to popular here 17HS8401. This will increase torque from 40 to 52N/m.
Also this will increase detent torque from 2.2 to 2.6 N/m so I hope my spindle will stop to slide down after turn off Z stepper.
Has it sense to upgrade MPCNC to GT2-10 belts?
I guess for this i will need
of course belt
4 (or more just for selection best) 16x10mm pulleys
8 bearings and 8 more long screws
probably, I will have to design adapters for mount nylon strips.
these parts are cheap, but does this improvement will worth the time spent?
on small feedrate like 8mm/sec or less it looks like doesn’t matter, but for more feedrate may be this could be useful (as example for use as laser cutter).
I don’t think you will see much improvement using the 10mm belts over the standard ones. In most, if not all, builds belt stretch isn’t an issue. Even when moving at a relatively high rate of speed the belts don’t stretch.
