Re: Import shield with TB6600 stepper drivers

hi there , I'm trying to get my board setup (import CNC shield ) using TB6600 stepper drivers . I first set it up using the A4988's for the 3 axis's & all was well. then I tried to set up without the A4988's & using TB6600 stepper drivers . my lead screw's are 20 tpi , stepper's 200 steps per rev ....

Re: Grove Connector I2C SDA and SCL pins are flipped

Thanks for that. I just double checked and unfortunately you are correct.

We have stopped supplying the boards with the Grove connector since the beginning of the year because we can't source them anymore.

Re: Accessing Arduino GRBL settings via Arduino serial terminal

Also can I pull power for a 5v fan from the 5V and gnd connections in the box with 5v Abort Hold,Gnd RST Resume? And if so will I still be able to power buttons from this area of the board? I would not suggest that. The 5V is provided by the RPi and a fan might overload it. The buttons are basicall...

Re: Accessing Arduino GRBL settings via Arduino serial terminal

First let me say this hat is amazing. I am retrofitting my old router with a failed tb6560 board and was able to have the machine moving within 3 hours of receiving the hat using drv8825 drivers and a pi4. I have been looking for the correct way to access the GRBL settings via the Arduino terminal....

Are there any future plans to add more axes?

The current 4 Axis is great, but I'd like to add a rotary in the future.
These boards are designed around GRBL. Future version will support more axes but we will have to wait and see... ;)

Re: Macros and scripts.

I'll start by saying I am still in the process of building my machine. Currently I'm waiting on some over seas supplies. Tell me about it... Covard has turning my supply chain into an nightmare. Components I bought directly from suppliers in China use to take 2 weeks but are taking up to 3 months n...

Re: Custom Cutter Using Raspberry Pi

I do have one question. Is it possible to flash a custom sketch onto the Arduino-based microcontroller on this board? I have a software (MIGRBL), which is a port of GRBL with functionality for a Z-axis servo. Would it be possible to flash this to the Arduino? Yes, the standard RPI image has Arduino...

Re: Macros and scripts.

I am not sure this will work...

GRBL the firmware only accepts G-Code and the code below looks more like batch scripting.

I would suggest raising the question on the bCNC site : https://github.com/vlachoudis/bCNC/issues

Re: Grove connector on V 2.60 board

Unfortunately we are not able to get the parts at the moment with Covard messing up suppliers for us.

Re: Connect a laser

I must say, that if one can't get an answer to a simple question, then it is time to move on to a system that does. Please use the V3.51 . That supports the latest GRBL that does laser control. I left this thread open for manufacturers that want to support their cloned versions of this board. None ...
