    Hey guys! So, for a personal project, I have been building a CNC machine. I got a kit from makerfarm and have it physically built and wired up. I just am having issues with updating the firmware for the CNC xpro V3 board from openbuilds that I'm using. I press 'update drivers' and it tells me that the best drivers are already downloaded. I downloaded the latest grbl source code, and then followed a tutorial for updating the firmware, and I can't get it to work. I wanted to use universal g-code sender, and I connected my board and it says 'press $ for help.' When I actually press the $, nothing comes up. I'm wondering if something is wrong with my board. I've noticed that when I have power running to it, the board heats up incredibly to the point that it smelled like something was burning. Any advice?
