CNC Shield Board:
1.The newest CNC Shield Version 3.0 for Arduino.
2, GRBL 0.9 compatible. (Open source firmware that runs on UNO for Arduino which converts G-code commands into stepper-signals,)
3, PWM Spindle and pin direction
4,4-Axis support (X, Y, Z, -Can duplicate X, YZ or the full 4th axis with custom firmware using pins D12 and D13)
5,2 x End stops for each axis (6 total)
6, cooling allows
7, using the detachable A4988 or DRV8825 compatible stepper driver
8, jumpers for Micro Stepping for stepper drivers. (Some drivers like DRV8825 can do 1/32 micro step)
9, compact design.
10, Stepper Motor can be connected with 4 pin molex connector or soldered in place.
11, runs on 12-36V DC. (Currently only the DRV8825 driver can handle up to 36V so please consider the operating voltage when powering.)
12, Please note that this is an unassembled kit and basic soldering skills are required.
