    Hi everyone.

    I'm building a DLP printer, and I decided to use GRBL as the motor controller. The thing is I'll just need to control the Z axis, I won't have neither X nor Y axes, so is there a way to completely disable them and reuse free pins for other functions with custom GCODE?

    Hi David, thank you.

    I'm actually a programmer, so it could be easy to do, I just need to know where to look at... The GRBL project is big, so if anyone can point me in the right direction I could be able to do it myself!

    well, the code is documented, you just have to read it (-:
    please don't ask the primary programmer for help on this, he is busy on the next release and we need him to be busy on that instead of being interrupted (-:
    in fact the next release will have a HAL layer which will make what you want much easier.
