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.
Ultimaker 1.5.7 Controller is a board that’s very similar to other Pololu-based
electronics implementations, including RAMPS, but it can support up to 5
steppers (three for X, Y, Z, one for an extruder and one for any other
function). You can add as many stepper driver carriers as youneed. It is
designed to run at higher voltages than 12 Volts, This allows you to put 90
Watts out of one MOSFET and run your stepper motors with more torque and higher
maximum speeds. This board is also used on the Mantis-30 milling machine from
Protospace and on various Mendel’s that people have built.

- Sainsmart A4988 driver is a carrier board or breakout board for Allegro’s A4988 DMOS Microstepping Driver with Translator and Overcurrent Protection by Pololu; we therefore recommend careful reading of the A4988 datasheet before using this product. This stepper motor driver lets you control one bipolar stepper motor at up to 2 A output current per coil.
- 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. With the bootloader, download the program directly via USB without having to go through other external writer. Supply part of the optional USB power, or as an external power using the AC-to-DC adapter and battery. Arduino development IDE interface is based on open-source principles, allows you to free download for use in project work, school teaching, motor control, interactive works.
- Sainsmart LCD Controller contains a SD-Card reader, an rotary encoder and a 20 Character x 4 Line LCD display. You can easy connect it to your Ramps board using the “smart adapter” included. After connecting this panel to your Ramps you don’t need your pc any more, the Smart Controller supplies power for your SD card. Further more all actions like calibration, axes movements can be done by just using the rotary encoder on the Smart Controller. Print your 3D designs without PC, just with a g-code design stored on the SD card.
