Note: Until we have higher inventory levels we ask that you please limit your order to a maximum of 5 Smoothieboards per individual. If you are interested in reselling Smoothieboards or including Smoothieboard in your own product please contact us directly for more information and to discuss options. Thanks for understanding!

Note 2: I know there is not enough info right here about the different board configurations. For the moment, please check out the Kickstarter page which has lots of info: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/logxen/smoothieboard-the-future-of-cnc-motion-control 

 

The Smoothie project is about creating an open source platform for controlling digital fabrication machines and to make that platform as useful to as many people, projects, and use cases as possible.

Smoothie firmware can run : 

  • 3D printers
  • Laser cutters
  • CNC mills
  • Other types of machines with minimal effort

By combining all of the jobs into a single modular firmware Smoothie allows different communities that would otherwise be working apart to share a common basis and to add their specific uses on top of it.

By making one board that can run all of these different machines Smoothieboard creates a hardware platform that different projects can share and build upon. In the smoothie community progress on one aspect of the project benefits all of the different communities using the platform.

Smoothieboard 5x features:

  • 5 integrated Allegro A4982 stepper drivers with digital current control able to drive up to 2A each
  • 3 large FETS for controlling large resistive loads like heated beds
  • 3 small FETs for controlling external peripherals such as small fans or hotends
  • USB-B supporting simultaneous serial control and sdcard access
  • MicroSD card
  • 6 endstops
  • 4 thermistors
  • extra i/o including spi, i2c, uart, and more gpio

All current Smoothieboards are based on the same pcb as the Kickstarter. The different variants simply have more or fewer components populated. It is always possible to upgrade a board all the way to 5x with appropriate soldering skills and tools.

For more details and specifications check out the wiki here: http://smoothieware.org/smoothieboard

All of the board design files and firmware source are available on github: http://github.com/Smoothieware

If you are interested in the Ethernet feature (newly supported in firmware, not fully tested) you will want to pick up the connector here: http://shop.uberclock.com/products/hr911105a

To run a Smoothieboard without the USB connected requires an external 5v power supply. The other option is to add one of these switching 5v regulators to your board which will then pull logic power from your main 12v/24v power source: http://shop.uberclock.com/products/switching-regulator-dc-to-dc-5v

 

Smoothieboard orders from North America ship from Idaho. Orders from Europe and the rest of the world are shipped from France by Robotseed. If you are from outside North America, please feel free to order directly from http://robotseed.com/.
