#Need_Help

I’m in a fix.

Trying to build a robot that can solve Rubic’s Cube.

I have to control 6 stepper motor separately,

Using Arduino Mega 2560 R3.

Is it possible to control 6 stepper motor separately at time with
Arduino Mega??

And what about motor shield? Do i have to use shield for each one??
(Connecting the wires of stepper motor is also a fact as it has 4 wires)

you can connect 6 stepper motors on one shield arduino uno r3 has different inputs and outputs

ya you can use 6 stepper motor with arduino mega . for the driver you can use either one shield or seperate driver for each motor

the stepper motor that you will use depends on the capacity of the arduino you are trying to use because if the arduino will be overloaded, and may be damaged. :)

Yes you can definitely use 6 stepper motors by giving commands at each input seperately

The motor shield has 2 channels, which allows for the control of two DC motors, or 1 stepper motor… for more information use this link …

still haven’t got the proper answer :/ . searched that link above, it shows that i can control 2 stepper motor at a time with shield. In that case i have to use 3 shields! That’s not the best idea, i have to make my project cheaper :/
