Back to basics


What a crazy world we’re living in right now, with everything shut down for the Corona virus. I hope anyone reading this is safe snd well.

The enforced stay home has given me some more tinker time, so I’ve gone back to basics with a single motor & step driver. The arduino is running grbl now, and connected to a Raspberry Pi running bCNC.

It all seems to work rather well, and has really helped my understanding of how it all fits together. Nick and Matt have been a great help, remotely of course.

The next job is to fit it all into a box to mount on the wall, move the humongous power supply and get it all connected securely. The motors, mounts, pulleys etc. also need sorting, so there’s still a lot to do!

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
