Daniel! Thanks for the quick I am printing the MKll now.

I was confused and though that the MKll was supposed to be made with the pulley, my bad.

The real question was if there is a file for the X2 configuration to use 2 stepper at once.

The other thing I want to ask is if there is a file to for the use to modify for the use of Nema 17 stepper, those are the ones I can find in Costa Rica.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Abraham, sorry I don't understand the question?

If your printing the Turbine I would absolutely recommend printing the MkII it has some very important features that you will need to make the wind turbine function at its maximum like the tail fin and the slip rings for the electronics.

regarding the Belt drive this is an optional mod, you can use the cogs or belt both do the same job fundamentally.

Does this answer your question?

Thanks Dan

Thanks!
