I’m planning on building one of these awesome looking ZenXY tables y’all are showing off here, but I haven’t decided too much on form and size so far. I can’t afford buying too much of the components and was wondering if any of the users here know, if I can get the ZenXY to draw into sand using an Arduino UNO and the Arduino CNC Shield I already have lying around from an electronics box I picked up on ebay some months ago. If the specifications work, what would be the general direction to go in?
From what I learned the Arduino CNC Shield is a GRBL-compatible board and I need to change the homing sequence. Anything else I should look out for?
I also have an older raspberry pi 3 lying around. If I use this, how would I go about connecting the stepper motors to it?
Have a nice day/evening/night and I’m really pumped by the cool designs around here.
