I have a project is nearly same as lot of people
A cnc mill!
I have read a lot of build thread and i see lot of different hardware people use but the one keep my mind is odrive.
I “cross” read all the availaible document on odrive site and i dont understand all what is explained but i dont want to go further till i have my answer
I want to use odrive to the spindle of my cnc mill.
Odrive, why? To orient the spindle for future atc, do rigid tapping and use outrunner dc motor because the ratio, price/torque/speed and ability ,i hope, to use odrive, a powerfull drive cheaper than other solution,i think.
My question is, can i do it with odrive?
And how? Just to know the term, because i dont know all the term was used in the documents,
And can i control it with linuxcnc?
My plan is to use mesa card but for now i only have a “cnc4pc” breackout board
I dont need all the explanation but only some clue to know exactly what i have to seach for ( term like step/dir)
For the moment im in developpement, my plus side is on mechanic, but i dont realy know electronic thing but i understand apromimatly how it work
