Guys so i recently purchased this system and i an new in this, i uploaded succesfully the arduino 0023 driver to the arduino board, what is next.....Does the arduino driver i uploaded contain all the codes for the printer to function on the X,Y,Z axis as well as the extruder.....

It sounds like you have an Arduino and downloaded the software from Arduino. You now need to download, configure and install 3D printer software.

Based on your question it sounds like you are pretty new to things like Arduinos. You might want to just play with the Arduino a while and make it do some things like blink some LEDs, etc. It will get you familiar with the way the whole workflow of loading programs goes. There are a lot of on-line tutorial and the Arduino software comes with examples.

I think you might get very frustrated if you went too fast.

Thankx Bart, and yes i am crawling still i thought this was going to be easy.
Download - what do i need to download and from were
Configure - how do i configure
Instal 3D Printer Software- is the sofware Merlin

I would need to upload all this things like i did with the arduino driver.

Thankx

You need to get some 3D printer software to run on the Arduino. There many choices, but I would suggest Marlin.

Marlin can run on many types of printers, so you need to tell it about your printer by editing a configuration file.

You then need software on you computer to talk to the Arduino. I would suggest Printrun.

There is a page with links to the software here

These two programs will allow you to run the printer with G-Code. Don't worry about this step until the two steps above work.
