GT2560 Wire Cutter

I saw this article and would like to make a similar device however I want to use a kit that I ordered a while back that I never ended up using for my printer. I am very new to all this and have some questions. Article:

I purchased this kit: ... Sw4QVZ07pS

It comes with the following:

1 x GT2560 Board
5 x DRV8825 stepper motor driver
5 x Heat sink
2 x Sticker
1 x LCD2004 control board
2 x Control board cable
1 x USB cable

I have to purchase a servo motor which I was thinking of getting this one: ... ay&sr=8-12

I also have a full extruder assembled that I will rip off an old printer which has the stepper motor and etc.

Is this even possible? I know the board has no place for a servo but I can solder if I have to. I have a programming background and can write the code once I know what I'm doing exactly. Don't worry about the PCB and making it pretty I can do that afterwards when its working :lol:

If you guys can shed some light on this and send me in the right direction I would really appreciate it!

Thanks a ton in advance!

Novel ideas, but I am afraid not.

Ha ha.

That's cool. :D

If you bought a GT controller for this project, you need to find a free pin to use it to control the servo.

In the forum section about controller boards there are schematics available - you will need them.

The easiest way to control the servo is to use the PWM signal.
If you haven't done it before, read about it.
