Alternative Controllers

Instead of using an Arduino microcontroller, Arduino stepper shield, and Pololu A4988 Stepper Drivers (or an Arduino and a GrblShield), you might be able to find an all-in-one controller board.

Netduino Microcontroller

Netduino CNC

Alternative Controller with On-board Microcontroller

TinyG (from ShapeOko community member Alden)

Alternative Controllers without On-board Microcontroller

(Used in conjunction with a PC equipped with a parallel port and running LinuxCNC or other controller software )

4 Axis Open Source CNC Controller
HobbyCNC EZ-Driver Board
Xylotex 3-Axis Stepper Motor Driver Board
HY-TB4DV-M_Ebay_CNC_Controller_4-axis

Alternative to Stepper Shield

Stripboard stepper driver carrier board
