Unfortunately, there has been no update on the five axis controller in ac2 1/2 months, so I have had to go with another system for the new build, shame but them's the breaks.
Sorry to hear... What did you end up going for?

Re: Arduino + cnc shield WiFi or wireless control

yes that can work...

CNC.js allows you to control the board via a browser.

Hi Nick, https://learningdevelopments.co.nz/products/a4988-stepper-motor-driver-carrier?_pos=2&_sid=a13f02ac8&_ss=r It use to be NiceGear.co.nz but they were bought out... Other option is Trademe...

Re: Headless bCNC operation

bCNC needs a screen to operate. So it will need to be VNC and it will only be able to run after connecting.

Not sure if Linux has a way to do that....

Is it possible to directly wire E-Stop and control panel buttons to the RST, ABORT, RESUME and HOLD buttons on the shield? Thanks in advance.
Yes... it should be okay. Shorting the pin to GND will activate their function

I have a v. 2.60 with rpi and the 7 in touchscreen. Since the Protoneer hat uses the power GPIO pins, how are others powering their touchscreen? Use one of the USB outputs from the rpi to the micro usb port on the touchscreen control board? With a good USB power supply like the 3A RPi power adapter...

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 Model B - no life sign from the motors

From your email this the unit you are using... TB6560.gif This particular driver looks like the 5V pin is powering an optocopulare of some kind and can be using a bit of current on the 5V pin. (Some of these drivers also don't need the Enable pin connected because they have a pull up resistor. )
