Controllers

When picking a controller for your printer, there are a few things to consider: voltage, 8bit vs 32bit, price, and firmware.

An "ideal" setup is any board with 24v power and 32bit processing.

32bit boards allow for higher theoretical speed caps, resolution, and faster processing. Tech2C, the creator of the original Hypercube, talks about it here.

Ideally, you should pick the features that you require, and then find a board that fits your criteria. If price isn't a concern, consider picking a genuine board (Smoothieboard instead of MKS SBASE, for example), as they are usually higher quality, and supports the developers of the technology behind the design.
