MakerBot Print is our newest print-prepration software, which supports native CAD files and STL assemblies,
allows you to interact with all your printers via the Cloud, and many other exciting new features.
I have made further investigations with the Nema 23, connected capacitors but nothing improved, still the same 0.5A for a little bit more V (48)...
I have to test with a Nema 11 but as I need at least 12V to have useful current to charge the battery :-/
Maybe an axial flux generator could achieve better efficiency at low speed ?
I have read you tested building your own generator but you didn't have useful current. I have seen your pictures, the problem is that you have no iron in your generator.
I have seen interesting designs for axial flux generators but they lack iron backing...
