as part of a research project I am making a rotational moulder. As seen in the picture, the mould would be fix in the middle by rubber bands and thanks to the action of 2 stepper motors, the rotor will rotate along two axis (x and y).
As I don’t have experience with motors and their control I don’t know what I exactly need to control the motors. I selected the LulzBot NEMA 17 Stepper Motor for his high torque and dimensions.

I found out that I’ll need:
- stepper shield
Is the stepper only for the electronics and the arduino for the programming? Which aspect of my motor do I need to consider to chose these elements? The voltage and current only? Knowing that my motors have a rated voltage of 2.8V and current of 1.5 A.
Would the following be compatible? or do you have other suggestion?
- Adafruit Motor/Stepper/Servo Shield For Arduino V2 Kit - V2.3
- Arduino Uno R3
Looking forward to hearing from you,
Thank you for your support,
