I’ve got a Brainwave Pro lying around (I’m one of those software guys with a hardware addiction - “oh look, a shiny new board - I should have one of those because, err, shiny!”). Anyone ever try to drive an X-Carve with one? It’s on my list of things to experiment with, but hasn’t made it to the top yet.
It’s a brave new world.
You might be able to get this working. Here’s a place to start:
Atmel AT90USB1286 Microcontroller
From this web site: http://reprap.org/wiki/Printrboard
Grbl: No official support yet, but works with Lincomatic’s fork.
A.J, I think that’s a Brainwave, not a Brainwave Pro. The Pro has a lot more heatsinking.
There’s a long discussion of how to install for the 3D printer here, and I’m hoping that it’s similar for the XCarve. Certainly the Arduino bootloader stuff will be the same.
