How to flash GRBL v1.1 to Arduino MEGA

Where to buy GRBL MEGA Shield


I recently came across a seller on Tindie that has the MEGA shield for sale.
GRBLDuino Mega Shield V1 is the first user-friendly GRBL v1.1 compatible 6 axis Arduino CNC controller shield.
Available in kit form, which requires soldering of standard through-hole components, or assembled and tested. Shipping is free within the United States.

  • Fits Arduino Mega (not included)
  • Designed for Pololu DRV8825 stepper motor drivers (not included)
  • Works with power supplies up to 45 volts DC
  • Screw terminals for all machine control connections
  • Dual end stop terminals for each X, Y, and Z axis
  • Single end stop terminals for each A, B, and C axis
  • High or low activation limit switches/end stops
  • Emergency stop, abort, door safety, hold, and resume connections
  • Spindle speed (PWM), enable, and direction connections
  • Flood and mist coolant connections
  • Probe connection
  • 6 independent axis capability
  • Full micro-stepping control for each axis
  • Genuine Nichicon capacitors

To have a complete CNC machine, you also need:

  • 1 control computer (to send G code to GRBL)
  • 1 Arduino Mega running GRBL v1.1
  • 1 stepper motor driver per axis (pin compatible with Pololu DRV8825)
  • 1 stepper motor per axis
  • 1 stepper motor power supply (max 45v DC)
  • 1 spindle, pen, laser, drag knife
  • 1 CNC machine structure
