    Excellent work @Bmoz :thumbsup:

    Thank you for sharing the information. It is nice to know that LinuxCNC is so easy to get up and running from a standing start and it looks like you are now well on your way towards a fully functional machine. ;)

    Tweakie.

    Since I also want to use LinuxCNC for my build, your info is very helpful and timely.
    If possible, please provide some more details regarding the motor control.

    I would like to know how you would connect the Gecko driver with the Synthetos 3 axis
    driver board you mentioned in your BOM.

    I am thinking about using Beaglebone Black as my Linux computer.

    Thanking you in advance!

    If you use the gecko g540 no other driver is necessary. I scrapped that board and forgot to remove it from the BOM.

    What are you building?

    Thanks for your clarification. I thought it was rather confusing that you are using G540
    and Synthetos.

    I am waiting for the parts for building an OX-like CNC router which can handle 4' x 4' panels.
    That is why I am very interested in your build.
