Re: All I/O pins on the board. And descriptions..?

STEVEDEWATER just an FYI in my photo the RED headers JST connectors are the same thing as using the external board adapters. They are the same signal just not passed to the big green screw terminals via the external motor controller adapter board. Just be aware you MUST connect a ground to use those...

Re: All I/O pins on the board. And descriptions..?

Hi stevedewater sorry for long time between reply. I've moved on from the protoneer board due to some short comings that the MFG neglected to mention anywhere except for complaints on the forum, which would aid buyers so they would know before buying. As to the external board adapter, If you have th...

Then this project i have been building up towards, and am just starting to work on getting the electronics and software side going. Will have been ...

Re: Can't find a wiki

RKO1405 There is no real WIKI and there is NO manual. The Wiki is Spotty partial information with zero organization at best. If anything its organized by random. And there has been near ZERO updates to make the pages more accurate and informative... I do not expect there to ever be. This post will p...

Re: GRBL

What is your setup... What board do you have... makes a huge difference depending on what proto board(s) you own. Some setups like the RPI protoneer board expect you to run arduino IDE on the RPI its self and update via direct plugged in connection. other boards that use arduinos expect you to conne...

Re: All I/O pins on the board. And descriptions..?

For external motor controllers. Are the STEP/DIR pins and any other pins active HIGH or active LOW? Also is there a firmware build that has 4th axis control instead of mirror?
