    You have lots of Arduino code options: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/arduino-code-for-use-with-various-hardware-and-simtools.31/

    But I would suggest you try SMC3, as the instructions are detailed and it has a app to do all the settings: http://www.xsimulator.net/community...3dof-motor-driver-and-windows-utilities.4957/

    If you are using cheap clone MMs then be aware of potential faults and how to test them: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/reputable-monster-moto-suppliers-testing-before-use.158/
