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!
