I'm currently working on a mini cnc, I have most of the items ready to assemble, ballscrews, bearings, aluminium framework, etc. Just need to machine some of the components, then assembly will follow soon after, but need to sort out the electronics.
As a fan of the arduino I would really would like the arduino to be the main star of the show, and be able to use the USB port would also be nice
I stumbled on this link (see below) I'm surprised there are no posts regarding this shield on this forum yet
Seems like a really simple and clean approach, even though I know the lack of software is the downside, maybe someone has some info on the software I can use.
Am I going down the wrong path by using the Arduino?http://www.synthetos.com/wiki/index.php?title=Using_the_grblShield
