My TinyG controller burned and can't be restored. Currently I set up an Arduino Uno with external drivers and GRBL firmware. My goal is to replace Arduino with Beaglebone Black, since only 3 axes are supported in GRBL.
Conclusions so far:
Beaglebone Green Wireless can't be used, because some needed pins are occupied.
The machinekit image for the Beaglebone can be downloaded from:
I changed the image to be flashable (by changing uEnv.txt) and flashed it to the EMMC
I use it with WiFi USB stick that can be configured as described here
For the connection I use putty and Xming with X11 forwarding. In this way you don't need a display on the BBB. You see everything on your PC.
I installed samba on the BBB and created a shared folder for quick files transfer.
Machinekit can be run by simple command:
I see the machinekit interface on my PC and I selected CRAMPS as an interface board.
To be continued...
My current setup - Arduino is going to be replaced, may be.
