Congratulations on assembling your BobsCNC. We are now ready to download Arduino Driver, UGS, and Java. and learn how to connect and home your machine. Let's get started!
The first thing to do is to download the Arduino Driver:
Website Link: Arduino IDE Software
Once the driver has been downloaded, let's verify that is was done correctly:
The next step is to download the UGS Platform.
UGS Download Link: UGS
To familiarize yourself with UGS, Bob has created an informative video, click on the link below.
We are now connected and ready to go, one of the first things we need to understand is how homing creates soft limits.
If your CNC will not home it may be the home switches. Please see here for a video on diagnosing home switches:
For an overview of UGS and how to orientate your machine, please watch the following video.
