Stepper Motors

The Boxd 3D uses (including a single extruder), five NEMA17 stepper motors:

  • Two of these motors (the Z-Axis motors), are wired in parallel to the same stepper driver
  • The extruder stepper motor needs a minimum Holding Torque of 40Ncm (0.4Nm)

More information can be found on the Stepper Motor page.

Controller Electronics

Though built with the RAMPS 1.4 in mind any Reprap electronics that can run CoreXY capable firmware will work.

Required Features:

  • Four Stepper Drivers
  • One Thermistor Input and one Heater Output for the Extruder
  • CoreXY compatibility

For comparisons, see List of electronics, Comparison of Electronics and Alternative Electronics.
