Nema 17 Step Motors

Which Nema Step Motor is recommended for a Modified Shapeoko2 CNC wood Router?

I’d try to use 23s if you can. What controller / stepper drivers are you using?

you can use 17 for the z and 23 for all other axis the higher the torque the better make sure x and y axis has the same type of steppers

You can use Nema17´s but you should use 23´s :slight_smile:

Go with low inducance Nema23´s 76mm long for X/Y´s and if you adapt the Z to accomodate a longer motor go 76mm there also, if not go with a 56mm long one.

Low inductance motors is better suited for 24V PSU the Xcarve use.
