If you’ve been eager to get a 3D printer of your own, but can’t quite afford the price tag of higher-end models, then the RAMPS 1.4 Kit with Arduino Mega & 5x A4988 drivers is the perfect package to get you started! This kit is built to be the brains behind a custom Prusa i3 3D printer, and can comfortably supply power and control signals to up to five individual stepper motors if necessary.

The kit contains a main controller board, known as the RAMPS or “RepRap Arduino Mega Pololu Shield”, an Arduno Mega microcontroller board to communicate with the RAMPS Shield, as well as five A4988 Stepper Drivers that are used to translate the signals from the RAMPS Shield for the Stepper Motors. The relatively simple components all work together to become a reliable, highly efficient but low-cost solution to building your own 3D Printers, CNC machines or many other custom CNC systems.

Aside from the components in this kit, the only parts required are the Power Supply, stepper motors and a 3D printer chassis, after which you can build an entire 3D printer of your own, just like we did back when we first started supplying our Prusa i3 3D Printers to customers throughout South Africa and beyond. And after selling around 2000 of these printers, as well as a host of other high-end models like the Creality CR-10 S5, we still highly recommend this RAMPS 1.4 Kit to anyone who is eager to build their own printer from the ground up.

Extra Note: This is a fully assembled board, I.E. no soldering required. In addition, we test the kit with drivers installed on our Prusa i3 test bed before shipping.

Typical Applications for the RAMPS 1.4 Kit with Arduino Mega & 5x A4988:

Although the RAMPS 1.4 Kit with Arduino Mega & 5x A4988 drivers is highly versatile and can realistically be used for a near-endless range of CNC applications, it is most commonly known for its use in Prusa-based 3D printers. It can operate up to five stepper motors individually, which is perfect for the X, Y and Z axis, as well as the extruder and one extra component of your choosing. This is more than enough, along with the Marlin Firmware of course, to completely operate a 3D printer like our In-House models, without any additional drivers, converters or adapters needed.

*Note that the microcontroller is not supplied by Arduino. It is, however, manufactured to the same specifications and quality controlled locally to ensure it functions exactly as expected while saving you money.

Top Stuff!

I bought this combo a while ago and was stunned at the build quality of the RAMPS board, I have bought these RAMPS boards from other places and they don't even compare in quality. I hope they continue supplying this board at this quality as I will definitely be buying as it comes in stock again.
