    Has anyone upgraded the xPro v3 firmware to grbl 1.1? If so, where can I find the proper header files for the v3?

    Okay, it appears that the stock GRBL/Uno combination is directly uploadable to the xPro. Guess I'm too used to the RepRap world where every controller has a different pinout header ...

    Progress report: Downloaded GRBL v1.1f to the xPro v3 without issue. The PWM variable speed spindle control works perfectly with my 500W air-cooled spindle, and I just need to finish up a few Fit And Finish items on my C-Beam before I can start milling for real.

    Hello Mark

    Hows your machine working? I have the same control board and am looking at help info to setting it up. Would you be disposable for assistance? I have the xPRO v3 stepper driver board. I'm using bCNC with it. Bot having much success. Any help would be appreciated.

    First suggestion is to set up the vPro using GrblPanel as shown in the build videos. Once you've got it working in GrblPanel, then you can configure bCNC.
