This file provides a simple test program to move the three stepper motors, first the x-axis stepper motor that moves the paddle back and forth across the table and then the y-axis stepper motors, the two motors which move the paddle forward and backward.

Note

If you are unfamiliar with how to develop and upload code for Arduino Mega, go to the https://www.arduino.cc/ website. It has a detailed set of instructions ...
