I've been trying to find online how to install a hotend for a reprap but have had no luck. I'd like to know how to properly wire a 3 wired hotend (one wire is a thermistor) to the electronics boards I'm using. I have an Arduino MEGA 2560 connected to a Quadstepper board (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10507
). Using neither RAMPS nor Gen6/7/etc. Will I need another board to run the extruder controller? Is there any way I can heat the hot end without having to place another order?
Lastly, is anyone aware of a good resource for hot end wiring directed towards a beginner?
Thanks for any help.
