Hi i am a newbie to arduino and picking up fast. i just need to know how we can setup a stepper motor and a servo motor with the official arduino motor shield v3.0 shown here http://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoMotorShield

there is very little documentation and hence i am stuck
i have a small hobby servo ( it has three output wires ) and a five pin unipolar stepper motor

sorry if this is the wrong place or anything to post such a query
any help will be appreciated



thank you

Check out this thread, I just figured out how to do a stepper.

It will only do one stepper, and does not do servos at all.

Good luck

you don't need a shield to run a servo, any free digital pin will work.

see the servo tutorial here: http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/Sweep

you do need the shield for the steppers, its the servos that run without a shield.
