Connecting 2 and 3 axes boards
« on: February 07, 2018, 01:31:55 AM »
Hi

Now I have a 2 axes and a 3 axes board , both EleksMaker

I was thinking of bridge the two together so I have at least a 4 axes to work with.

I am looking for a rotary setup so I can keep my z-axes

Is this any good?

The 4-axis board is not Grbl compatible, it requires a cracked version of USB CNC software.

It must not be the 4-axis, perhaps you mean it has 4 stepper drivers.

....DO NOT BUY THIS BOARD....

That board had 4 drivers and 5 stepper motor headers.

Just like all the EleksMaker boards, they have Y1 and Y2 but unlike the rest this is not Grbl compatible.
