    Hi all!
    I need urgently help on this. I've setup a workbee with an arduino nano but i can't upload the grbl library. I have 4 nema step motors and drivers, a 24V power supply and a nano shield board wirh arduino nano on it. I have dowloaded the grbl library from grbl/grbl and tried to upload it to the nano through arduino ide.
    Any ideas??? Thank you very much.

    Did you follow the install instructions on the Grbl Wiki?

    Of course making sure you selected Nano in boards menu instead of uno (it uses a different bootloader)

    Genuine nano or chinese fake - if fake, make sure you have the ch340 drivers installed and auto reset might not work so play with the reset button (let go just when IDE says "uploading"). Or get a real Nano that works better than the fakes

    Did you download the Arduino IDE so you have all the drivers?

    All the genuine drivers..

    If it's a fake, check what USB chip it uses, usually CH340, sometimes Prolific or CP2102. Those are not included in the Arduino IDE install
