The CNC Shield for Arduino is a specialized module designed for controlling CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machines using an Arduino board. It provides a convenient interface between the Arduino and stepper motors, enabling precise and synchronized movements. The shield features slots for four stepper motor drivers, allowing control of multiple axes. It also offers dedicated pins for limit switches, spindle control, and coolant control. With its compact design and compatibility with the Arduino ecosystem, the CNC Shield is an essential component for DIY CNC projects.

        • Ensure that your Arduino board is disconnected from any power source.
        • Align the CNC Shield with the Arduino board's header pins and carefully plug it onto the Arduino.
        • Confirm that all pins are properly aligned and seated without any misalignment.
        • Connect the power supply (12V to 36V DC) to the appropriate terminals on the CNC Shield.
        • Insert the stepper motor drivers (A4988 or DRV8825) into their respective slots on the CNC Shield, aligning the pins correctly.
        • Connect the stepper motors to the stepper motor driver modules, ensuring the correct wiring of motor coils.
        • Connect limit switches, spindle control, coolant control, or any other necessary input/output devices to their designated pins on the CNC Shield.
        • Write the code in your Arduino IDE to control the CNC machine's movements, utilizing libraries or custom functions to interface with the CNC Shield.
        • Upload the code to your Arduino board and power it up.
        • Test the CNC machine by sending appropriate commands to the Arduino, verifying that the motors move correctly and other functionalities operate as intended.
