Converting the 3Dtek Heavy Mill using the GRBL AIO over to MASSO Controller.

Hi,

My name is Scott Turner. I have the 3Dtek Heavy Mill running the GRBL AIO CNC Controller and 1.5 kw Air-cooled Spindle. I have the MASSO Controller Hardware now and I am looking forward to retrofitting this equipment. Has anyone on this forum done this, and if so do you have any tips before I go charging ahead? Thanks in advance.

Regards

Scott

Welcome aboard @formeindustrious

I converted a Shapeoko 3XL a unit that is a tad lighter than your 3Dtek machine. Mine too was GRBL and moving to Masso was the best thing I have done. Not a lot of advice I can give up front except to say if you haven't yet purchased your stepper driver I can recommend the Gecko G540, it just works and interfaces beautifully especially if you have purchased the 3Dtek Masso to Gecko Parallel although I notice its price has more than doubled since I bought ming about 4-5 months ago.

My conversion went beautifully. Rest assured there is help on this forum if you need it especially from @masso-support who answer queries almost daily. Good luck.

Thank you for the reply Clover! Great to hear that the change over was so beneficial, and thank you for the recommendations. I have a few spare days coming up so I am looking forward to laying everything out and hooking up the new system. Should be fun.

Cheers!

Scott,

The Bicton Men's Shed purchased the Heavy Mill with Masso Controller & Gecko 540 driver.

See the installation in the Intro forum on this link

I'm willing to answer any questions that you may have.

hi Scott let's first start with a basic wiring diagram that will give us idea on how many wires are required, next we can start positioning all the components in the enclosure and start wiring them.
