CNC FeatherWing #Feather #FeatherWing #Adafruit @Hacksterio @Arturo182

Prolific developer Arturo182 posted the design for an Adafruit Feather compatible FeatherWing to control CNC machines on Hackaday.io.

Inspired by the Arduino CNC Shield, offers similar functionality.

Requires a Feather-compatible microcontroller board.

– 4 slots for Pololu stepper motor drivers, 3 axis + 1 clone axis (configurable via jumpers)
– Endstops for X/Y/Z with selectable active level (high or low)
– Pins for external buttons including emergency stop
– Pins for spindle and collant control
– Configurable microstep resolution via jumpers

The beauty of this is that:

  • If you want to use another type of microcontroller, remove the Feather sized microcontroller board and insert the new board
  • If one of the motor control channels fails, swap a new one in within seconds.

See Hackaday.io for more details.
