I want to control 3 Nema stepper motors for x steps and then trigger a camera (2.5mm male cord). I’m pretty sure this is easy to do with Arduino but I have no experience with it and not sure what to buy. I know basic programming and that part seems kinda easy but I dislike soldering and want most of the parts to be plug-n-play.
What do I need?
3x Nema 17 (or 23) stepper motor
Genuino Uno or Mega?
Adafruit Motor / Stepper / Servo Shield - v2.3? - Do I need 1 or 2 of these? The adafruit link says something about multiple shields not working with due wire, what is that?
Some kind of power source? Any special genuino parts for that?
I have a 2.5mm male cable, do I need a shield for the camera trigger function?
