My name is Jim and I have joined the group and have been looking around in the fourms. I am totaly green at CNC. I am trying to find plans for a controller board so I can attempt to build it. Also what is a breakout board and what does it do?
The breakout board connects your motor controllers (ie Gecko) to your PC via the printer port (parallel).
Someone else will have to help you with the controller.

Lots of driver plans plus interface boards which is an other name for a breakout board.
Thanks for taking time to reply to me.
I checked out the web site. It has lots of good info.
