A full Ramps 1.4 3D Printer Kit - no more fuss on making sure you got the right compatible components because this is all you need!
This kit includes all the main and basic electronics that you need to get your printer going. The last part will be to choose your own Screen and Stepper Motors.
The kit includes the following:
1x Arduino Mega 2560
4x A4988 Stepper Motor Drivers
1x Ramps 1.4 3D Printer Shield
The Ramps 1.4 is the most common 3D Printer mainboard setup. It is 100% fully supported by Marlin Firmware and highly recommended when getting started with 3D Printed as all the
latest Marlin features are usually available on Ramps 1.4 Boards before they are available to others.
Ramps is a driver board designed for 3D printer, based on platform (firmware) Repap. It not only drivers four steppers so you can design many types of machines based on it, like CNC, and as a mature platform specially for 3D printer, it also driver extruder, fans, temperature sensors, SD card, etc.
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 its powerful platform and has plenty room for expansion. The modular design includes plug in stepper drivers and extruder control electronics on an Arduino Mega/Sainsmart 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.
The RAMPS 1.4 board is an upgrade to v1.3 as it now uses surface mount LEDs, resistors, and capacitors.
