Control Boards....What are you running?
March 24, 2015 05:06PM
So because I am thinking of upgrading, what is everyone running for control boards these days? My Ramps 1.4/Mega combo have served me well until I tried 1/32 micro stepping. Now I must have lol. So time for any upgrade, I really like the features of the replicape/beagle bone black and the smoothieboard with software current settings but the price point of the Ramps-FD/Due combo have got me intrigued. Anyone have any thoughts?

I run the RAMPS/Mega combo on all my printers. Cheap and works well. Every time I get a spare $10-15 laying around I order another one... If I find a good price on steppers then I build something... Lol...

Same here ... no point going with more expensive boards.

Ramps 1.4 with Arduino Mega. . I am using the DRV8825 drivers and could not get 1/32 stepping to work so I ended up using 1/16th stepping for the X, Y, Z and 1/8 for Extruder. They work just fine so no reason to get one of the other more expensive boards.
