I have a non Carbide 3D CNC machine that I would like to run it with a Carbide Motion PCB.
I really like the simplicity of the Carbide Motion software, mainly the Shapeoko Touch Probe
and the Shapeoko BitSetter.
I would like to know if it’s possible to use the Motion PCB with a generic CNC machine?
Did any one else try that? Do you think I’ll face any issues in the process?
Currently, on my machine, I’m using TB6600 stepper drivers to run the Nema23 motors.
Is it possible to connect them somehow to the Motion PCB?
I’m afraid that we only sell our controller bundled with our machines, and that replacements are only intended to be available for our machines.
If a person manages to source a controller for this, while possible, it would be an unsupported use.
There are many other boards which are available for machines which are similar to ours — the Gradus M1 Pro from Panucatt seems especially nice and configurable: https://wiki.shapeoko.com/index.php/Gradus_M1_Pro and there is a wide variety of communication / control software available:
