My CNC takes its first steps. Hello World.

… and I only ruined one Sharpie.

After far more than a weekend of work, I have wired up the Shapeoko’s stepper motors to its Arduino and run my CNC through its first tests. The system has been tuned and calibrated and is now ready for a build. There were a lot of mistakes made along the way however… watch the video for the full story. Too lazy to write a debriefing now.

  1. Can you post a picture of your wiring, especially the changes you did on the X and Z axis? Also a diagram showing the color arrangement you are using.

    I’m want to set the coordinate system to one that makes sense and so far the base that came installed does not make sense to me.
