About this project

Description

Our motto at CNC Snap is "Think it. Make it." This board is perfect for any robotics project that needs stepper motors like a DIY CNC, laser engraver, or 3D printer. If you're a maker you might like to bucker this Kickstarter, the Arduino Powered Stepper Motor Board. To keep the cost low, we need to do a batch order of PCB and parts. You'll receive the latest version available when the kickstarter is funded.

Domo*pes v0.4 PCB

Heat sink upgradeable

90% Through Hole parts so they are easy to replace or upgrade.

Features & Specs

  • Stackable and any existing Arduino shield can be used
  • Outputs to 3 axes drivers by default, supports additional drivers
  • Switchable jumper pins: full, half, quarter, and eighth steps
  • Arduino 328 integrated
  • USB communication
  • Loaded with Grbl
  • Compatible with 4, 6, and 8 wire stepper motors
  • A3967SLB driver
  • Input power supply: 12-30V
  • Output power: 12/30V
  • Motor 150mA/phase-750mA/phase
  • Wago screw clamps
  • Heat sink upgradeable and a 12V cooling fan output
  • Full documentation here.

 Docking Development Board

Arduino, FEZ Panda, and Netduino will dock onto the Domo*pes. Power output is compatible when the Domo*pes is powered on.

Arduino, FEZ Panda, and Netduino will be powered on by the Domo*pes and could be programmed to talk to the on-board atmel 328p and vice versa or independent.

After a successfully funded kickstarter, the Domo*pes PCB's EAGLE schematic files will be released as open source. All backers will also get VIP Access & a thank you post on cncsnap.com.
