This goes for other pins as well this would permit users to adjust there board to there needs.
It's their, not there.
Just saying.

I do not understand what your saying/asking? Others reading this may agree..?
A recap, I'm suggesting to the designer of the RPI cnc hat to look at a re-design to the code to make it easy for people to re-assign pins so that instead of being hard coded to be a single correct but fixed code function input or output like PWM or a logic HI/LO they can adjust the ladder logic so the board works with there setup. Not everyone for example has a speed control able spindle but rather have a router connected to a relay for ON/OFF, a lot easier then having to manually turn the router on because they cant gcode it to cycle on or off because they dont have a PWM interpreter

I was just saying that you used the incorrect spelling of the word "their".
You used "there", when refering to people, it should be "their".

You also used it here in your latest reply.
ladder logic so the board works with there setup.
No biggy, I just notice things like that.
Maybe I have OCD. :)

I too just got a 2.6o CNC hat and have been working through the setup. I would echo a couple of the items that have been mentioned. Having jumpers for the A output slave settings would be great.

A couple of new items that would be nice to haves:

1. Option to power the Raspberry Pi from the motor supply rail
1a. An option to enable/disable supply to motor rail post supplying a DC to DC converter for the RPi power
2. LED on the motor supply rail to quickly see if power is applied
3. Header for a cooling fan off the motor supply rail (maybe PWN control from the I2C interface)
