(3) Fits 5 Pololu stepper driver board.
(4) LEDs indicate when heater outputs on.
(5) Expandable to control other accessories.
(6) Heated bed control with additional 11A fuse.
(7) Option to connect 2 motors to Z for Prusa Mendel.
(8) I2C and SPI pins left available for future expansion.
(9) It has provisions for the cartesian robot and extruder.
(10) All the Mosfets are hooked into PWM pins for versatility.
(11) 3 mosfets for heater / fan outputs and 3 thermistor circuits.
(12) Fused at 5A for additional safety and component protection.
(13) Pololu boards are on pin header sockets so they can be replaced easily or removed for use in future designs.
(14) Servo style connectors are used to connect to the endstops, motors, and leds. These connectors are gold plated, rated for 3A, very compact, and globally available.
(2) Mega 2560 R3
Fully compatible with original Arduino MEGA 2560 R3, with this product, you are able to use all the Arduino open source platform to create or learn interactive objects, it will be a lot of fun while you are creating and learning it, so just get this and start it, we also provide reference pdf files that can help you to improve skills very quickly. After all, time matters, the sooner you can improve your programing skills, the sooner you can create amazing projects.
Compared with UNO R3, this is with main Chip ATmega2560, with more I/O Pins, and additional 10 PWM output, of course, the EEPROM is also with larger space.

(3) A4988 Stepper Motor Driver
A4988 is a complete microstepping motor driver with built-in translator for easy operation. This product is available in full, half, 1/4, 1/8 and 1/16 step modes operate bipolar stepper motors, output drive capacity of up to 35 V and ± 2 A. A4988 includes a fixed off-time current regulator, the regulator in slow or mixed decay modes.

(4) LCD 2004 Smart Display Controller
This Smart Controller contains a SD-Card reader, a 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.
(5) 4 pcs NEMA 17 1.8° 2.6 kg.cm flat shaft Stepper Motor

(6) All Metal MK8 Extruder + Bowden hotend
The extruder is almost the most important part for 3D printer, also the most difficult part to calibrate. We have made necessary design to prevent "jammed" problem. I can't emphasize anymore how important this is, other sellers don't have this and would cause many problems.
This MK8 extruder is an open source universal suitable for most RepRap and DIY long distance feeding filament 3D Printers.
What is the benefit of our MK8 extruder + Bowden hotend? Compared to normal J-head and others, this is with all metal structure. If you mistakenly heat the hotend over 280℃( this is possible by the temperature sensor error ect.), traditional J-head would be melted and got damaged forever, with this one, it is fine or you just need to replace a nozzle.
important notice about how to use it
Please always keep the fan on while using it, otherwise it will get jammed. Especially when you use PLA, it will got jammed right away in a few minutes soon. ( if unfortunately it got jammed, please contact us, we will teach you how to clean it ).
Make sure your Gcode is with fan on settings automatically, or you can also turn it on manually.
(7) Round shape MK3 heatbed 3mm aluminum PCB board
The Round Aluminum Heated Bed Heatbed MK3, which will greatly improve adhesion of 3D Prints to the build surface. You can also operate this board with 12V and 24V two voltage, more practical.
High Quality Aluminium Heated Bed Heatbed for Kossel 3D Printer beds. Made from 3mm Aluminium for better heat distribution and a flatter print surface.
Heatbed with 3.2mm Aluminum Core. Print directly on the heatbed, no need for glass plate. It's a much lighter solution than PCB heatbed + glass, which makes it better for faster prints. Due to the aluminum substrate material is expensive, the cost of production is often ordinary glass fiber board is expensive, so the MK3 price is more expensive.
Please notice: the Aluminum Heatbed can have some marks or minor scratches, but it will only be of cosmetic character and will not affect the use adversely.

(8) 6 pcs of Mechanical Endstops
Mechanical switches are less complicated to implement and cheaper than optical endstops. The function of endstops are to determine the original position of the extruder hot-end, so it knows where to extrude the plastic material.
While using the Endstops, please be careful! for the wrong connection, it's possible to burn the mega 2560 board!

(9) Filament for test
In this kit, we also include some plastic filament for you to test.
please notice: we will only send one random color, and this is only for test, not enough to print a 3D model.
We could provide more:
Below are 3 must get software and firmware:
1.Marlin: firmware to communicate all the parts( we include the code you need ).
2.Printrun: the software to communicate between 3D printer and computer.
3.Slic3r: final step to get the Gcode. ( Gcode format is what you use to run your 3D printer ) if you need them, you can contact us after you purchase( please write: require 3D printer firmware and software ).
