RAMPS

RepRap Arduino Mega Polulu Shield, or RAMPS, is a board that serves as the interface between the Arduino Mega — the controller computer — and the electronic devices on a RepRap 3D printer. The computer extracts information from files containing data about the object you want to print and translates it into digital events, like supplying a voltage to a specific pin. It takes many, many such pins turning on and off to tell a printer what to do. Unfortunately, the Mega doesn’t have enough power to actually operate the printer’s hardware.
