SainSmart Ramps 1.4 + A4988 + MK2B + Mega2560 R3 + LCD 12864 3D Printer Controller Kit for 3D Printers RepRap

This is the new SainSmart 3D Printer Starter Kit, developed specially for those beginners who are interested in 3D printer. You will have a complete set of Sainsmart’s most common and useful electronic components. You may learn about Sainsmart through using these basic projects.

Sainsmart RAMPS 1.4 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 an Arduino Mega with the powerful Arduino MEGA platform and has plenty room for expansion. The modular design includes plug in stepper drivers and extruder control electronics on an Arduino 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. 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 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.

Product Features

  • 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.
  • Sainsmart A4988 driver is a carrier board or breakout board for Allegro’s A4988 DMOS Microstepping Driver with Translator and Overcurrent Protection by Pololu. This stepper motor driver lets you control one bipolar stepper motor at up to 2 A output current per coil.
  • Sainsmart LCD 12864 contains a SD-Card reader, an rotary encoder and a 128 Character x 64 Line LCD display.
  • SainSmart Mechanical Endstop perfect for any 3D printer. 100% compatible with all Prusa and Mendel 3d printer variants.

  1. NO DOCUMENTATION, Weak motors If you buy this kit you will screw yourself in the end, it seams like a great price but the motors and everything included are bottom of the barrel and you get no jumpers for the drivers and no glass for the bed and they gave strange color wire for wiring the motors that don’t match the motors current wires and both are still too short the lcd is cheap and actually everything else in this kit is pretty much the same quality, oh and you’re lucky if everything works on your board I found some…

  2. Does what it says It took some research, but it’s working under Marlin for me. To the previous review: I had to look quite a while to find the correct settings for this display (The smaller display is more popular, and has better documentation).First, you’ll have to import the U8GLIB library, then in configuration.h, you should set:#define ULTRA_LCD#define DOGLCD#define SDSUPPORT (The display has an integrated SD card reader – I’m not sure why this kit comes with the microSD reader…
