    Nice controller. I had your earlier V3 and V4 controllers and they worked wonderfully and a real good alternative at the time. I found the micro-stepping incredibly useful when initially engraving PCB boards. The fine control was noticeable in the very fine traces I could achieve. It looks like this new controller has taken the great work so far and brought it next level.

    ...Huh.

    Ah. That makes more sense. Guess we see what Peter's been alluding to the last few months?

    So will it run a laser with a dedicated rotary with the GRBL port mentioned - preferably with Lightburn?

    Rob M, thanks! Im glad to hear the V3/V4 worked well for you :thumbsup:. Since we used the trinamic drivers, the V5 microstepping goes up to 256

    Rob T, lol - nope, this is not Peter's secret, just our next controller.

    Giarc, absolutely on the laser (0-5V pwm, and 0-10V on the board). Probably no problem with Lightburn, I will give it a test a let you know for sure

    RatRig has this in stock for a while already, but you release the V5 on 13th Jan. Is that a different version ?

    Yes, ESP32 GRBL supports it. I am not sure if you can create custom firmware for the Xpro V5 (I have not looked into it), but the 6 Pack which uses the same GRBL version supports it. See the video

    I swear, I have no affiliation with Bart (although I seem to reference him or his work a lot), I am just a user of his controller board.
