    I finished building my Tevo Tarantula a board like this seems more familiar to me. Will this be recommended for a MPCNC?

    I wouldn’t recommend those MKS boards. There is very little support for them and a few versions, most of very questionable quality.

    I do not recommend any of the MKS boards, a quick search for info on any of them will probably convince you as well. There is nothing, not even a changelog and most of the versions have some serious issues.

    I would 100% recommend the ramps over an MKS of any model, I built all my machines around it. Now though, if you really want the best board I can not recommend the ultimachine boards enough. The Mini-Rambo’s have been such a dream to work with and so far pretty dang bullet proof. (I plugged on in the other day power into the output ports and nothing happened, that would have smoked a ramps in a millisecond).

    Okay. I will take your recommendation with this.

    The rambo boards look nice with the inline fuses, but I am on a budget.

    Don’t let Ryan know….. but he has the cheapest mini rambo boards on the inter webs. If you can, order one before he comes to his senses…

    HA! Thanks, I triple checked with ultimachine and they were cool with it, but seeing the prices others are charging they seriously might make me raise it. A lot of other companies force a price, some are so high I don’t want to waste my time with them.
