I’m looking to wire up everything on a breadboard for now. Does anybody have a schematic I can follow? I have all of the required components and have the Mega wired up to a breadboard with the stepper drivers. I’m just unsure which pins go where. Is there a file that I can follow that will tell me this?
Thanks for the help! I have assembled Thor, but am still working on a couple of issues. My output shaft for the geared steppers are 8mm, so I can’t use the GT2 pulley for support in art2/3 until I get half of it drilled to 8mm, which won’t be an issue, I’d just rather have a ;shop do it accurately. I also accidentally only ordered one to many of the 40mm stepper motors, and one less of the 34mm. As well as the GT2 closed loop belt. So I thought while I waited I’d mess around with prototyping a rough control board.May 4, 2017 at 11:03 am #811
Hi Antonio, I have several ControlPCB V1.0 and mats for assembly them.
What are you looking for? Only the PCB? The PCB+Mats or an already assembled PCB? I’m from Spain, and I think that the shipping cost to Italy is about 5€ (not really sure about this).May 4, 2017 at 11:09 am #813
Hi Triumph! You can check the KiCad files uploaded to the repository. But you are right, I’ll make and upload a clearer diagram as soon as possible!
Best regards!May 4, 2017 at 8:37 pm #815May 4, 2017 at 11:21 pm #817
That’s perfect! Thank you for the help!May 5, 2017 at 6:14 pm #819
Hi Ángel, i need to buy The PCB+Mats or an already assembled PCB.. What is the difference of price?May 5, 2017 at 7:23 pm #821
Hi Antonio, I can send you PCB+Mats for 30€+Shipping or the already assembled and tested PCB for 60€+Shipping.
Note: I’m not a professional solder, it takes me about 2 hours of work and the results are not like wave soldering (industrial).
In both cases the mats include:
- All male pins
- All female pins
- All resistors
- All leds
- All capacitors
- All terminal blocks
- The diode
- The fuse
And it does not include:
- Arduino Mega
I prefeer the first option, just because I don’t have much spare time but the assembled is offered anyway! 😉May 7, 2017 at 5:55 pm #823
hey angel, great work!
is there any photos to be found of all the assembled pcb’s?
and where should i buy all the small electronicsMay 7, 2017 at 8:18 pm #825
A photo of an Assembled ControlPCB?
I attached one to this message 😉
have bought most of the electronic components from Aliexpress and
others like fuses from electronic online shops from my country.
Hope it helps!
EDIT: I deleted the previous message because I didn’t attach the image 🙁May 8, 2017 at 8:36 am #827
hey angel 10x for the quick reply
what about the sensor PCBMay 8, 2017 at 9:42 am #829
Currently, the sensors PCB I have are the ones that I made using a CNC, which is not the best replicable option I think.
If you want I can disassembly part of my robot to do a photo, but I don’t know if it will help you. I’m curious about how other Thor Builders did with the position sensors, any of you can share their experience?
I also remember that someone told me that there are commercial sensors (like this one) that could fit inside Thor… I think that the 3D model can be modified easily to hold that sensors instead of the DIY ones. What do you think?

;AngeL,Can you please put together a bill of material so I can buy the right component to assembly PCB. You did not include all components on PCB as indicated on your hackaday page https://hackaday.io/project/12989/components. I’m ordering ;a fully assembled PCB from a US company. thanksBen ;September 23, 2017 at 8:15 am #833September 27, 2017 at 9:51 am #835
Please take a look at the Component List at the Wiki page.

How should the Jumpers be connected for the Stepper Controllers
