Total electronics newbie here…
I’ve got a 3D printer. It’s based on RAMPS, which is a USB-powered Arduino Mega and a separate wall-wart that powers the shield which drives the steppers and hot end and fans and such.
I also have a FEZ Spider Starter Kit on order.
I would very much like to be able to drive the printer from the Spider instead of (or in addition to) my PC - far more portable that way! The SD card and enet and touch screen could make for some pretty interesting interfaces to the printer.
Will I be able to power the Mega via the Spider USB Host module? This feels like a lame question that probably doesn’t include a lot of needed context and stuff but I’m not sure what else I need to include… :\
