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: Don't waist your time and money

I agree the Documentation SUCKS beyond sucks.... And pathetic with an amature presentation at best, and there has been zero effort by the MFG to update or correct any of those documentation issues.

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?

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

I'm considering this the beginning of a Manual for first timer setting up the board. All the data that will be generated via Q/A should help a lot of people. :) and me....

Re: rpi 2.60 HAT Pin outs and Many missing detailed DETAILS

(I'm referring to the arduino version BTW) If I was going to do anything it would be to make it EASY to connect to mach3. That way you have options to connect with the current ""software"" or with advanced softwares like mach3 and others I might add. My thoughts would be to use a USB to parallel por...
