- ESP8266 12-F: https://www.katranji.com/tocimages/files/423280-229082.pdf
- 12v 2A DC Power Supply (no link – just make sure the amperage is higher than your stepper, with some room to breath to also run the ESP8266)
…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.

Everything ready to go, just need to put the lid on
