Synchromesh Cable Kit (Prusa Mendel compatible)
This a kit to upgrade your Prusa Mendel's (Mendels & other similar 3D printer) belts with the new Sychromesh cables system.
Includes 3 meters of synchromesh cable (3.81 pitch) and 2 matching pulleys (15 teeth) for stepper motors with 5mm shafts.
The synchromesh cable is manufactured by combining coating technology and wire-twisting technology.This provides the advantage of cables (possible 3D distribution) and the convenience of timing belts (easy mounting). This synchromesh cable employs the same gear-mesh type transmission as the timing belt.
The cable is 3.81mm pitch and the wheel has 15 teeth = 15 * 3.81mm = 57.15mm per revolution.
For 200 step (full step) stepper motor = 57.15 / 200 = .28575mm / step or 3.4995 steps / mm
For 3200 step (1/16 micro steps) = 57.15 / 3200 = .017859375mm / micro step or 55.993 steps / mm
For 6400 step (1/32 micro steps) = 57.15 / 6400 = .0089296875 / micro step or 111.986 steps / mm
