I'm really new to smoothie board and I'm at the point where I just need to move my motors and they aren't moving. There might be various reasons why but I want to start with how pronterface works. I'm not familiar with it. I'm sending in g-code commands and it doesnt seem to move the motors. I'm wondering how pronterface knows which Motor on the board I'm trying to interface with? (I'm using an external stepper driver) For instance: I have M1 hooked up to one motor, when I send in the command, does pronterface see M1 as the x-axis? I'm just a little confused at how pronterface actually interfaces with smoothie board.
Any help is appreciated. This is for my senior project.
External driver: microstep driver cw230
motor: SM57Ht51-3006A (from buildyourcnc.com)
