    I've searched the forums but haven't found anyone using the blackbox controller with Dragonframe. Has anyone successfully done that? I know for arduino based systems you have to upload a sketch to it to get it to work properly, but not sure if the same sketch would load to the blackbox (or if it's even arduino based).

    Any help would be appreciated. I'm building a motion controlled video rig, and really like the build quality of the blackbox controller - plus it saves me some headache for building it all from scratch :)

    Yeah, BlackBox is essentially an Arduino Uno with accessories. Should work fine.

    We cannot help with the DragonFrame specifics, but checkout the Grbl Pinout to get you started: github.com/gnea/grbl/wiki > Connecting Grbl

    Awesome. Thanks for the quick response. That's all I needed to know :) There's so much out there on arduino and Dragonframe that I'm sure I can sort that bit out. I really liked the contained package you guys have for the controller, so I'm glad it will work out.
