Assembled RAMBo 1.3L Kit

This all-in-one 3D printer motherboard is made by Ultimachine using an Arduino MEGA microcontroller board, and comes equipped with integrated stepper drivers, built in fuses, and more. Please note that this particular RAMBo configuration does not include any wires or connectors.

  • Features

    RAMBo v1.3 is built on the shoulders of the Arduino community, so hackers should consider this motherboard for additional projects beyond controlling a 3D printer.

    Curious where the product's name comes from? This motherboard is a full remix of Ultimachine's popular RAMPS design, with the Arduino MEGA and stepper drivers all on one integrated PCB. Thus, the name (R)epRap (A)rduino-MEGA-compatible (M)other (Bo)ard (RAMBo) was born.
