Are boards for testing still available? I’d like to request stepper boards.
My recently finished Rostock 3D printer build is undergoing a revision of build UP in height and runs a RAMPS 1.4 with StepStick boards.
I’ve been building and learning for over a year and have two 3D printer designs in the works. I’d like to run your new boards on the present Rostock and then possibly place them into one of the two new 3D printer designs under development.
I’ve also been building an InMoov robot which is using a Pololu Maestro 18 for servos in the hands. The robot will be requring more motors for the arms/torso which would be a good use for the new Pololu boards. Hairygael, the robot developer, has graced me with recognition of my efforts building and presentatiing InMoov at the Pittsburgh Maker Faire 2012 on his blog: inmoov.blogspot.com/ See two separate posts on his blog page. Once in the middle then again at bottom.
My lab consists of:
Six 3D printers in various stages of operation - 4 FDM and 2 DLP printers. Scopes, irons, old drives, wave generators, proto-boards, wires, heaters, resins, and more parts for the next builds.
And there is another Pololu use in a Delta Robot test bed where a Micro Maestro 6 is operating.
Lastly, it would be fun to show off your boards at HackPittburgh when the printers and bots come out.
