Things used in this project

Hardware components:
Abx00004 iso both
Arduino MKR1000 & Genuino MKR1000
SparkFun EasyDriver - Stepper Motor Driver
Adafruit Stepper motor - NEMA-17 size - 200 steps/rev
Adafruit Aluminum GT2 Timing Pulley - 20 Tooth
Adafruit Timing Belt GT2 Profile - 2mm pitch
Adafruit 12v Power Supply
Hand tools and fabrication machines:
09507 01
Soldering iron (generic)


Since all user interaction happens over wifi, the hardware is simple. Arduino MKR1000, EasyDriver, and a stepper motor. A 12v power supply comes into the EasyDriver, which then provides 5v to the Arduino.
