Hi everyone,
I would like to build a low cost motion control using micro-controller.
Is it possible to use Arduino+Ramps 1.4 for positioning this platform?

Do i have to use standard Marlin/Grbl firmware of I must create from scratch in order to position the platform?

thanks.

I plan to use Ramps because it can 5 control stepper motors, axis (x,y,z), E0 & E1.
Planned axis setup to the platform is X1,X2,Y,Z, rotatable axis.
In total 4 axis & 1 rotatable axis.

Is it possible to use Marlin/Grbl firmware to position the platform? or I have to modify the firmware.

Thanks.

p/s: Coordinates receive from LabView via serial com for positioning

I have to modify the firmware.
You will have to configure the firmware to work with your particular steppers, limit switches, etc.

Thank you for clearing that up!
