Using an Arduino to Control a Large Stepper Motor:

Part One

Video Tutorial on how to control large, Nema 34 Stepper motors with an Arduino, a 24V power supply and an ST-M5045 microstepping driver.

Part Two

Testing code from three different Arduino programs to drive the large NEMA 34 Stepper, then increasing the load on the shaft to see how the Stepper handles the additional weight!
