CNCzone is great. That forum helped me a lot from the beginning and I still visit it regularly.

The Gecko G540 and 4 nema 23 motors is the setup on this I am using. Its a little more than others, but it is rated highly for being glitch free. I am not trying to chase electrical demons.

I do not know how fast ipm it will go flat out….but I would not be surprised to see it over 700ipm+ with the gear reduction on the R/P. I am trying to make the gantry as rigid and as light as possible. So even a few pounds less than normal can have a huge affect on acceleration/deceleration.

But like I mentioned before…I will not mind speed…but its accuracy and repeatability I really care about.
