General Mach Discussion / 6 axis breakout board with VFD
« on: September 16, 2019, 02:25:48 PM »
I have a 5 axis router with 2 Y drives, and up till now I've just had the 2 drives running off the same pins on the breakout board.  I'm finding that I"m having issues with squaring the gantry, and I want to be able to home both Y drives independently.  So, I need a breakout board that can handle 6 drives, plus VFD for my spindle.  I have not been able to find a board that can do this.  I'm currently using this board with a UC100 motion controller:

I've found plenty of boards that advertise 6 axis, but they never have VFD capabilities from what I've seen.  I recognize I might need multiple boards to make it work, and if anyone could point me in the right direction as to how to do that, I would really appreciate it.
