A 4-axis stepper motor driver for creative applications

STEP400 is a 4-axis stepper motor driver designed for art or design projects. Specially focused on working with Open Sound Control (OSC) via Ethernet, which is a common protocol for creative coding environments, like openFrameworks, Processing, Max, Unity, or Touch Designer. STEP400 is a practical tool for both individual practitioners such as artists or designers, and professionals in the creative industries.

Now we are preparing a crowdfunding project with Crowd Supply. Please subscribe to updates.
