Re: GRBL Upgrade for Stepoko (i.e. Sparkfun Shapeoko 3)?

GRBL Upgrade for Stepoko (i.e. Sparkfun Shapeoko 3)?

So after waiting 5 days for Sparkfun support to answer my 2nd request for a GRBL update procedure for the Stepoko I concluded that they are not going to answer or even acknowledge my request. I am on my own (nothing new here). Question to the forum -- is there anybody out there who has updated the s...
