Controlling 6 to 8 stepper motors at the same time?
New in the forum. I'm building a new machine for an investigation project, and in its second stage we are looking to control between 6-8 stepper motors at the same time, kind of sending a G-code for each motor movement with a certain speed.
Something like: G1 X100 Y100 Z100 W100 U100 V100 A1000 D100 F30. (x, y, z, w, u, v, a and d as bipolar steppers)
I've seen some shields, like RADDS for arduino due and the Azteeg x3 Pro 3D that can have 6 or 8 stepper drivers.
The thing is that i'm getting lost in the firmware and host software (repetier host) to control such steppers all at once. Is it posible? should i consider other option?
Point me to the right direction! thanks
