I am just loosing it... never in my history of using computers have I been unable to "google" a solution, but here I am...
I have "flashed" GRBL to my arduino uno
I have added the GRBL and GRBL-Master to my library
I am using Arduino IDE 1.6.3
I can "include" the GRBL library and open the Serial Monitor
The serial monitor will read: Grbl 0.9i ['$' for help].
When I type $ nothing happens
Here is my question:
so what am I doing wrong, everything I read says I should get SOME information... I get nothing...
do motors need to be attached?
I KNOW, at one time I had this working and I could get SOME information when I sent the $...
I went out and bought a Protoneer GRBL shield as one of the first steps to building a CNC router (I already owned 3 Stepper motors), but now I don't know if I'm going to be able to feed the arduino "G-code..." I'm at a standstill...
ANY feedback will be appreciated..
