A Smoothieware board, it is available at:
- Wiring diagram
- Quick Start Guide --- https://www.panucatt.com/kb_results.asp?ID=1
- Driver support:
- Windows --- http://smoothieware.org/windows-drivers (supports Windows 7/8, driver can be manually installed in Windows Vista SP2)
- Linux --- built-in
- Mac OS X --- built-in
- Configuration --- http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/File:Config_azteegx5_shapeoko.txt c.f. w/ https://github.com/Smoothieware/Smoothieware/tree/edge/ConfigSamples and the documentation.
- connect the wires per the wiring diagram
- set the jumpers to match the (desired?) microstepping setup for your motors
- tweak the configuration files
- Steps per mm
- Set current to match the Amperage rating of your motors --- double for dual-drive axes (but max is 2A)
- enable options for accessories such as panels
The Shapeoko 3 motors have low enough impedance that they can be wired in series, without too much of a loss of performance (they won't reach the same maximum speed). Then, the 2 A of the Azteeg X5 should give you decent torque on the Y axis.
When selecting firmware in a host program of slicer, Smoothieware is compatible w/ Marlin commands, so choose that if no explicit option.
The board can have either screw terminals or plug-in vertical headers which use Molex KK 2695 series connectors.
The Viki 2 Graphic LCD should work: http://www.panucatt.com/product_p/vikilcd2.htm
Should work w/ Azteeg X5 mini v1.1 or later: http://eclips3d.proboards.com/thread/24/added-viki-lcd-azteeg-mini
