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.
Solved! Go to Solution.
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 ^_^ )
Old thread, but If you had this... it will solve your problem:
If you have a CNC controller that is compatible GRBL 1.1 then I think I have what you need:
I was able to control a GRBL controller based on a Arduino Mega with firmware GRBL 1.1 that has a CNC shield connected to it.
