3D Printer Error Detection (Part 2)

Background

I’ve been working on an encoder-driven system for error correction for a few months now. Ideally, the end-game would be complete closed-loop control over each axis. This would allow smaller motors (perhaps not even stepper motors), higher accelerations, and the ability to overcome most skipped-step related issues.

I posted a video last month, and after a much-appreciated post by┬áHackaday┬áthere was quite a bit of interest – so this is a follow-up post about the project.
