Re: Communication/Control Software Poll

Thanks Will, GRBLcontrol looks neat!

I just tried to use it but it looks like Grbl doesn't finish booting, because when I try to jog, nothing happens. If i close it and open Universal G-code Sender, the CNC moves fine.

Any suggestion? :|

Re: Limit Switch Wiring?

Nice wiring job! Assuming you have an S03 with the CM board, you only need the C and NC terminals wired from each limit switch... No separate 5v connection. Thanks, took me a while. Yes, forgot to mention that, I have an S3 and CM board... But as I mentioned, I followed cvoinecsu diagram (6 posts a...
