Topic: 3 Stepper motors using MotorShield: EasyDriver, is it possible? (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic

I want to control 3 stepper motors. I have an Arduino Uno hooked up to a Motorshield V2 (http://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-motor-shield-v2-for-arduino/overview).

I know I can use this MotorShield to control 2 stepper motors, and I was wondering if I could just hook it up to an EasyDriver (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10267) to control the 3rd stepper motor as well.

Thank you!

You need two free digital I/O pins on the Arduino to control the Easydriver.

I still have those pins available when I'm using the MotorShield... so are you saying that it will work just fine?
