    Here's something else to consider. Quoted from Cnckeith from Centroid.





    You can look up your CPU single thread benchmark here. Also, Windows 10 only! WinXP/7 need not apply.

    Nice! If you cut that, I recommend adding a slight draft to it. That will give you a better edge on those vertical walls and better motion from the machine.

    Along with that, something you can try in your design file, is to uncheck "Sharp external corners". This helps to keep a slight load on the tool as it makes the corner instead of a stop/start right...

    Alpha Vexta Driver

    I have a spare Alpha drive that was initially purchased for a future indexer, but never got there. It would work for that or a second Z axis, some other project or a spare. No cables included.
