This product requires a geared stepper motor.
To obtain the most from this revolutionary filament control system we strongly recommend coupling your Flex Wheel with a high quality precision geared stepper motor with a gear reduction box of 30:1. This stepper motor can be sourced through our affiliate link or ordered directly from us – compare postage costs (which is dependent on your location) so as to obtain the best value.
Alternatively the Flex Wheel has been designed to be compatible with a variety of Nema 17 geared stepper motors which are readily available – So if you already have a geared stepper motor lying around or wish to test with other types of motors you can always experiment – Feel free to drop us line, we are always happy to advise, help out and hear what else works.
