ESPBlinds – Wifi Controlled Roller Blinds

STLs are available at:

Parts used

…and some generic electronics components, such as 3.3v regulator, capacitors, resistors, and NPN transistors.

See the schematic for full details


NOTE The schematic shows the A4988 Stepper Driver, which was from a previous iteration. I am now using the DRV8255 which has a slightly different pinout.

Most notably on the DRV8255, the VDD pin is not present and instead replaced by the FAULT pin (which I am not using), and the RST and SLP pins go to 3.3v rather than being tied to each other.
