    Post Stepper motor for Ender 2

    Can anyone help me. I need to replace a stepper motor on my ender 2 but can’t seem to find any or what the model number is. Is it the same as for the ender 3 as these seem readily available. Dennis

    Well i mean you are obviously gonna want to take into account the size of the stepper motor. Right? I mean the ender 2 has 2 different size motors on it, doesn't it? Smaller for X and Y, bigger for Z and E? Personally I would make some lemonade here myself. I would buy 2 of these stepper motors for X and Y: https://www.amazon.com/Genuine-E3D-S.../dp/B07CYW7PPS . Two of these motors for Z and E: https://www.ebay.com/itm/0-9A-US-Shi...gAAOSwGL1ban-G . And then I would head over to Biqu's website for the awesome and cheap 32 bit SKR 1.4 along with the silent tmc2208 drivers and a tft v3.0 and enjoy making that lemonade. The stepper motors I suggested are a resolution increase 2 fold over what is in that machine now. And not a theoretical micro step increase. These motors have 2x the amount of points inside for the rotor to line up to. Real Physical steps. 400 per revolution vs. that 200 you are playing with: https://www.biqu.equipment/collectio...31220353106018

    Ya know, on second thought, Maybe I would just grab that new version of the SKR mini with the integrated tmc2209 drivers. With the tft3.0 it is even cheaper and takes up a smaller footprint which could only make mounting easier for the smaller ender2: https://www.biqu.equipment/collectio...31134411194466

    Thanks for the info.
    I did not realise there were 2 different ones fitted.
    The motor in question is the E.

    So E is just a regular sized nema17 stepper motor. I still think you should buy the 0.9 degree stepper motor. You will have to double the step count in marlin under the configuration.h tab but it will increase the quality of your prints to bring greater resolution to your extruder's feedrates. One like this one right here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/JKM-NEMA17-...979db3164b7662

    lol - the actual answer then is: buy a bog standard nema 17 1.8 stepper motor as a direct, drop in replacement :-)

    Honestly if you took your car to autowhiz with a busted shock, he'd replace the entire engine and drive chain as well as all 4 shocks :-)

    It's just that when a part fails and you replace it with the same part you have effectively thrown away that amount of money with absolutely nothing to show for it because the best you can hope for is to have the exact same functionality as just before the failure. And believe me, to replace stock parts with stock parts on a used ender 2 is most definitely somewhere in between throwing away your money and pissing in the wind. If we take these part failures as a chance to upgrade then at least we can enjoy a better texture or reduced salmon skin on the surface of our prints for the money and time we just spent repairing the failure. It is just a thing to understand what is an upgrade, and what is not.
