Re: GRBL Board

hah yeah , sorry if that was confusing.. The ENVIRONMENT is the software installed on the computer... The FIRMWARE is what gets flashed onto the chip... Chip comes flashed with BOOTLOADER and ATOMCNC GRBL TO MAKE CHANGES to the ATOMCNC GRBL Code all you need is to have ARDUINO ENVIRONMENT Installed...

Re: GRBL Board

When did i say that? Yes it does. But I myself prefer to use a simple batch file to compile and upload.

Per the Wiki I can't find a PSU on All Electronics and MPJA's PSU is $35 (instead of the $18 listed on the wiki)

Thanks!
