    the pc coller is mounted where the original black collers, I use a copper plate that I made by crushing a tube so that it makes the thickness so that it does not touch the solder, on the side of the chips I put the original cooler, all with thermal paste . I use it in a 2dof, each ibt2 controls a nominal 15th motor, 30a peak, works hard and does not heat up the cooler at all. It is a good option for the ibt2, with the original refrigerator in the no-load tests, it got so hot that it can not be touched, now at full load, the cooler does not heat up at all. Once the motor was blocked and it got so hot that I had to rectify the brush collector, the refrigerator did not heat up at all and the ibt2 held the motor lock.

    3.5nm will feels like g29 faster rpm...i recomend more than 8nm, but its personal preference...
    its kinda cheap in aliexpress...

    arduino mega is different chip, i dont know bout that...
    but u can use leonardo with aiwave or EMC software/firmware...

    but if u wanna use mmos u can use stm32f407vet6 or stm32f407vgt6 (need st-link for flashing)

    I'm thinking of doing the same thing, please keep us updated! I might start with a small nema 17 or something as a proof of concept. How are you planning on mounting the encoder?

    Hello, just wondering if you've continued this project at all? Would really love to be able to use a stepper motor like the nema 34.

    Thanks Ben
