We are 4 students who have little electronics support and we need to do some programming and electrical work. We have purchased an Arduino Due and know we need 7 motors (we plan on purchasing something like these http://www.valuehobby.com/17hs24-2104s-stepper-motor.html).
Our first question, is if we want to control all of the motors individually and at different steps, what should we purchase? Trying to get everything to fit on as few components as possible. Is there a large Step motor driver that can fit all of the motors? Do we need something else with the driver?
