    I started to wire my CNC with the Uno having not used Arduino before I decided to start again with a different approach.
    I purchased this https://www.arduinoclub.de/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/EN_AC-CNC2017-2S_REV05x_Schema.pdf awsome board from Germany, it has made the wiring much easier for unskilled types like myself but I do have some question I hope some of you seasoned users can help with.

    1.I am using 4 Hybrid nema 34's (2 on X) but the wiring diagram only has 3 motors, shall I just wire both motors into the same socket?

    2. For the Xbox 360 controller option, do I wire it into the shield or plug it into the computer with USB, also can it be wireless version or just usb hard wired?

    3. The wiring diagram has IN2 and IN4 with limit switch/ prox sensors, do I use both or select one to use?

    4. If i want to add a manual set of jog buttons to the front of the machine is this possible to wire in?

    You should contact the vendor. With that said and without knowing anything about this shield here are some generic answers.

    1 - That's what you'd do on an ardunio, so I'd say yes.

    2 - Usually usb. The software you use to control your machine needs to support it.

    3 - One or the other. They probably have different voltages on each pin. The vendor knows the answer.

    4 - The software you use to control your machine needs to support it.. There's nothing on the arduino for this.

    In the diagram it shows the PNP prox sensors all wired in parallel (would have to be used as NO in this use case) to IN2, IN1 is used as Z-Probe (sensor).

    I use an xbox controller with Estlcam and it plugs into the computer's USB. I believe Estlcam has a video on making a jog controller somewhere in these videos. Christian Knüll
