Schematics

Circuit Diagram

We use a high-torque stepper motors with the L293D motor driver, so the L293D integration overheated.

We should upgrade the L293D motor driver before connecting. You can watch the following tutorial for this.

After L293D upgrade, make connections according to the circuit diagram above.

Code
