AGPtek® RAMPS 1.4 Control Board + 5X A4988 Stepstick Driver Module for 3D Printer RepRap

Description:

– This list is a Mega Pololu Shield, or RAMPS for short. It is designed to fit the entire electronics needed for a RepRap in one small package for low cost.

– RAMPS interfaces an Arduino Mega with the powerful Arduino MEGA platform and has plenty room for expansion.

– The modular design includes plug in stepper drivers and extruder control electronics on an Arduino MEGA shield for easy service, part replacement, upgrade-ability and expansion.

– Additionally, a number of Arduino expansion boards can be added to the system as long as the main RAMPS board is kept to the top of the stack.

– This board is mostly based on Adrian’s Pololu_Electronics and work by Tonok. Copper etch resists methods suggested by Vik.

– Also inspired by Vik’s work with EasyDrivers. circuit design based mostly on Adrian’s Pololu_Electronics Joaz at RepRapSource.com supplied initial pin definitions and many design improvements.

– Much inspiration, suggestions, and ideas from Prusajr, Kliment, Maxbots, Rick, and many others in the RepRap community.

Package List:

1 x Assembled RAMPS RepRap Mega Pololu Shield

5 x A4988 Stepper Driver Motor
