The included SparkFun Stepoko is an Arduino compatible, 3-axis control solution with pre-installed grbl software and is able to connect to your computer to accept stepper motor commands. Additionally, the four stepper motors found in this kit are ideal for CNC projects by offering 125 oz.in of torque, 200 steps/rev, and adhere to a NEMA23 form factor.
