What other parts merit their own pages?

Post by WillAdams » Wed Mar 19, 2014 1:24 pm

We have these:

- MakerSlide --- http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/MakerSlide
- Stepper Motors --- http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/Stepper_Motors

What others do we need (as links from things on the Parts page)?

I was thinking:

- Microcontroller --- a general overview
- Belts & Pulleys --- a discussion of them and a comparison between GT2 and MXL (and lists of other options?)

Any others?

Stepper drivers or even just the pololu compatibles could be a good one to cover. Basic usage and adjustment and comparisons between the different flavors (A4988, "black edition", DRV8825, StepStick, SureStepr SD8825, knock-offs)
