Mounting the NEMA 23 and 9mm belt (big improvement for x-axis!)

A project log for Sentry water gun (lidar tracking!)

This high tech water gun will track persons with the lidar sensor and fire several shots of water

The NEMA 17 motor for the x-axis was not strong enough (missing steps), also the 6mm GT2 belt was causing some elastic effect due to the installed mass on top of it. Therefore I'm now switching to 9mm belt in combination with NEMA 23 and TB6600 stepper driver. This will be a more powerfull setup for moving the x-axis.
