Connecting to a Grbl firmware( cnc XPro) using LV ?

Hi, I'm trying to send gcode commands to my microcontroller (XPro v2) which is flashed with a grbl firmware, I'm not sure if Lifa is a good place to start with. I would appreciate any tips on how to send  those codes to my controller. 

 

Thanks 

Ahmed.

You cannot use LIFA (which is deprecated btw) to communicate with something that does not have LIFA firmware on it.

 

You first need to determine what type of communication your device uses.  If it's serial communication then I'd recommend looking at the serial communication example that come with LabVIEW.

Thanks for the reply. 

Yes indeed it is a serial communication. So what I'll need is just use a VISA configration to simply send my G Codes to the microcontroller ? (I'm a bit noobie here so bare with me ^_^ )
