    Can any body help, I have been having problems with achieving required dimensions ,so I have decided to check my settings from beginning ,I have re-input the settings on the Grbl panel but now I have a red light on each motor board connection and a flashing red light on my usb board input.

    Regards
    Richard

    Hi guys,

    Sorry this post was just brought to my attention - the LEDs by the motor drives simply indicate voltage going from the motor driver to the motor - Red = Coil 1 energized, Green = Coil 2 energized. If you use microstepping, as you step through the energy levels you will see the colors shift. also, if you use microstepping, there are 2 steps where the voltage is not high enough to overcome the turn on voltage of either LED - just move the axis and they will light up.

    Let me know if you have more questions,
    Thanks,
    Mike
