Controlling Stepper Motor with a Parallel Port

Posted on Aug 22, 2012

This is an easy to build stepper motor driver that will allow you to precisely control a unipolar stepper motor through your computer`s parallel port. With a stepper motor you can build a lot of interesting gadgets such as robots, elevator, PCB drilling mill, camera panning system, automatic fish feeder, etc. If you have never worked with stepper motors before you will surely have a lot of fun with this project.
