Topic: My ramps board seems to be misassembled (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


Hey, I'm just starting out with this sort of thing, and I couldn't figure out a reason for the discrepancy between my ramps board and the one showed in the assembly manual. Please look at the attachment and see if you can figure it out.


Item 1 is the LCD panel interface board.

Item 2 is a stepper driver without a heatsink. The heatsinks are stuck on with the double sided sticky strip.

The orientation of the heatsink should not matter.
Please ask questions in the forum so everyone can benefit. PM me for paid work.

Thanks for your help!


I also have five steppers drivers in the ramps board, but I think that one of them (item 2) is not used. Could I remove it?


Yes. You have 5 stepper driver on you RAMPS board but you only use 4. It should be noted on the ramps shield what exactly each stepper driver is used for. Like this: XYZ E0 and E1.

E0 is used while E1 is not. E stands for extruder.

You can remove E1 if you want.
