Homebuilt (DIY) CNC router - Arduino based (GRBL)
Cool! Step size has to be defined in the grbl settings! If it does 10 mm when it should have done 5, you have to set the number of steps per mm to half of the current setting.
Wow, great job! I am in the process of building one too. How did you connect the XY joint to the base of the X assembly? With nut/bolt/washer combination? Did you have enough clearance with the y-assembly?
Arduino - Digital Clock with aquarium RGB light control
$10 Arduino WiFi motion detector (PIR) that writes to SQL via cheap ESP8266 module
Hi, I made it! Finally it is builded and wired together. I am able to move it with universal gcode sender just now hehe :) Only have first "problem", when I click to move it with step size 100 (milimeters) that is 10cm it doesn't move so far away as it is defined. I think that I need to define somewhere what is 100mm movement, so how much stepper motor needs to turn threded rod to move axis for 100mm. Can you help me with that, where can I change it? Can you maybe send me your "configuration" file (if that is avaliable and even exist :) )?Thanks!
