Would it be reasonable to assume that since the S5 has gone to lead screws, is it going to have a lower maximum travel / cut speed compared to the belt driven systems?
From their blog post on the SO5Pro:
“Now, it wouldn’t be “The Carbide Way” if we made this easy, so we spent the time to make those ballscrews exactly what we wanted. For the X and Y, we got 16mm diameter screws with a 20mm pitch. We did this to ensure that we didn’t lose the travel speeds that we had with belts. We also made sure the X and Y ballscews have our custom wipers to keep the dust and debris out of the way.”
Thanks, that sounds promising. I must have missed that section so thanks for quoting it.
I guess it’s going to be a 5 then if they can ship them fast enough
Like me they’re verbose, so it’s easy to miss something. I’ve read it like 100 times. My order is in, so hopefully they’re overestimating shipping dates and it gets here before Christmas break.
