Getting started


Hi! I just got my Builder’s kit in the mail. The matte black finish on the base board is stunning, makes it feel like a high end graphics card!

I want to get started making some steppers go. I understand that I can use a lot of the documentation from smoothie (board/ware), but there are some juicy specifics that I need to know. Things like: What modules can I plug into what slots? How do I tell the firmware what is plugged into what? Where do I need to apply power? I take it the ATX-CPU 12V connector is the thing, but can I run the board with only logic power from USB 1st for config, or does it require 12V?


Thanks a lot!

I’ve published a ‘getting started’ guide that will help with the first steps, take a look, as usual questions are welcome!
