but one of the things that i think is a good idea is to put all the stepper drivers close together so that a person could put one larger heat sink on them. i also want to add a little prototyping area in the middle so that people can ad stuff that they would like, for example a lcd screen and more buttons.
but i would like to be able to modify the stepper from full to half but i am not sure what would be the best way to do that, i would like to do it with the arduino but that would use allot more digital I/O's so any ideas on that would be welcome
this is the start of what i would call a no compromise shield. i would like to be able to off load the temp monitoring onto a slave processor in time. but i think that is another discussion for another day.
