Drive a Stepper Motor with an Arduino and a A4988 Stepstick/Pololu driver
Hai,Thanks for sharing thisI have a question, I want a two stepper motors rotate adjustable after the first stepper gives made 360 degrees hi stop ,starts the second stepper motor to also rotate 360 degrees, stop and first put back his thing etc.I'm not a great programmer, can you could help me with itThe whole purpose is to build a 3D scanner

Paul,You mention that for a second stepper the same Pins/logic voltage is to be applied, but I'm not sure how to implement in the code. I've read elsewhere that steppers cannot execute steps simultaneously and they must step one at a time. I'm running a second A4988, that is wired according to your diagram, but, how might I run step exclusive to one stepper or another. Please let me know. Thanks for the tut.
I have followed the tutorial using the breadboard and it runs perfectly, Now I have replicated this onto a board, all connections are ok, ran the program and the motor pulses forward one step, and back again I have disconnected two of the motor wires and it still does this its as if the other two aren't doing anything? do you have any advice? I have checked every connection for continuity all ok and wires are all in the correct position
HiHow to stop the stepper .. I want to move it 200 steps then stop it
if i connect an unipolar motor to the driver with the common pin connect to the power supply gnd will it work
