Will probably use my machine just for milling and lasercut, and my steppers are rated with 0.59Nm 2A, so i need one stepperdriver for every Stepper, in repetier its very easy to clone the x and y axis to E0 and E1. Any reason not to go for 5 individual drivers (i know that it will be not possible 3d Printing feature, due to lag of one more stepperdriver)… Is marlin also capable of cloning stepper signals to other ports? Never used marlin, i normally use repetier for all my 3D printers and grbl for 2D Laser…
