- Sainsmart RAMPS 1.4
It is a Mega Pololu Shield, or RAMPS for short,designed to fit the entire electronics needed for a RepRap in one small package for low cost. RAMPS interfaces Mega with the powerful MEGA platform and has plenty room for expansion. The modular design includes plug in stepper drivers and extruder control electronics on MEGA shield for easy service, part replacement, upgrade-ability and expansion. Additionally, a number of 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.
- Sainsmart Mega 2560 R3
Sainsmart Mega2560 R3 is an ATmega2560 as core microcontroller development board itself has 54 groups digital I / O input / output terminal (14 groups do PWM outputs), 16 sets of simulation than the input side, group 4 UARTs (hardware serial ports), using the 16 MHz crystal oscillator. With the bootloader, download the program directly via USB without having to go through other external writer. Supply part of the optional USB power, or as an external power using the AC-to-DC adapter and battery. Development IDE interface is based on open-source principles, allows you to free download for use in project work, school teaching, motor control, interactive works.
- Sainsmart A4988 driver
This product is a carrier board or breakout board for Allegro's A4988 DMOS Microstepping Driver with Translator and Overcurrent Protection by Pololu; we therefore recommend careful reading of the A4988 datasheet before using this product. This stepper motor driver lets you control one bipolar stepper motor at up to 2 A output current per coil.

SainSmart is stepping up
I needed to replace a Printrboard with a failed X driver and decided to find a controller with modules instead of total integration. This RAMPS 1.4 kit (as of 8/14) is complete with jumpers and heat sinks for each driver. I tested each of the five drivers and all work. As far as a beginners kit, this is my first 3d printer controller project (I had no experience with said Printrboard) and inside of one week I have managed to load Repetier firmware with Arduino IDE and control it via pronterface. I suppose that there is no singular firmware that would work for every printer so Sainsmart leaves the card blank. The Repetier firmware page will generate you a usable file to upload to the mega2560 and there are plenty of tutorials on using Arduino IDE. There is no documentation from Sainsmart other than a blog and a tutorial on their product page. So from a beginners standpoint you will have to learn what an Arduino based RAMPS/shield is and how to configure it. I can find no reason not to rate the card 5 stars.
Super completed kit! I do adore it. Hope SainSmart better and better! ?,Dwight"
Have been to your store many times, not only the products but also the service is good. Hope your store better and better!
good for beginner
From a beginner’s point of view, this Printer Starter Kit is convenient and easy to use by following the tutorials. Perfect product!
This has it all!
This kit has just about everything you need to complete an Ord Bot Hadron 3D printer project. Just add the mechanical kit (with steppers) and a power supply and you'll be printing in no time. This is the kit I used to complete my printer. I am VERY happy with the quality and value of this kit.
work with arduino
I recived my package this morning and now i got time to write a review about this product. This is one part of making a home 3D printer. I thought this board is based on reprap but much easier to use. It make cotroling 3D printer with Arduino become possible. Follow is some information i found from reprap's wiki: Software To compile and upload firmware to your arduino-based electronics, you use the arduino IDE that you can download from the arduino website. Files The firmware files are usually packaged as source code for an Arduino IDE project. Arduino source code consists of a bunch of PDE (or as of Arduino ver 1.0, INO) files along with some extra .cpp and .h files thrown in. The Arduino IDE compiles the source code into a single .hexfile. When you click on the upload icon in the Arduino IDE, it uploades the .hex file to the electronics.
I have one 3D printer control board by my own soldering and im buying this kit now. The board of this kit looks pretty tautness and complete. They have mega ramps and step motor control, 5 pieces. The price is much lower than purchase them Separately.
no doubt that its price is pretty good. as their ad said without soldering just plug and play. i cant wait to get my package. this webstore is really cool. i will come back and introduce my friends shopping here.
