I have a very old Bart Dring board for the MPCNC (It is version 1, I believe, but there may be subversions).
Today, I tried fluidNC. It has some really nice features. The best being, you don’t have to change any code, or make any decisions, really, before flashing the ESP32. All the configuration is done via a config.yaml file.
So, I got this working on my Low Rider and I thought I would put the file here, in case someone found it useful.
This should work with minimal effort for an MPCNC as well. If you want to do that, change the X, Y, and Z axis labels and then make sure the speeds and steps/mm are set correctly for each axis.
I will point out that I think these pins changed on my board, and they should probably be something else for the v2+ version of the MPCNC board.
z: motor0: limit_all_pin: gpio.2.low # Should probably be 17 on newer versions coolant: mist_pin: gpio.17 # could be 2 on newer boards
I also think that the MPCNC board may not be coming back, and the 6 axis board may be coming in to take over, since the MPCNC board is already large enough to be close enough to just use the 6 axis board.
