Install Driver and Development Environment Software IDE

(1)Install Driver Software

For different operating system, there may be slight difference in installation method. Below is an example in WIN 7.
a.When you connect Keyestudio CNC GRBL V0.9 to your computer at the first time, right click “Computer” —>“Properties”—> “Device manager”, you can see “USB2.0-Serial”. Shown below.
thumb

b.Click “USB2.0-Serial”, select “Update Driver software”.
thumb

c.Then, click “Browse my computer for driver software”.
thumb

d.Find the “usb_ch341_3.1.2009.06” file.
thumb

e.Click “Next”,Installation completed; click “Close”.
thumb

f.After driver is installed, go to “Device manager” again. right click “Computer” —> “Properties”—> “Device manager”, you can see the Board and Com port as below figure shown.
thumb

(2) Install Development Environment Software IDE

Install Firmware and Grbl Controller

a. Write test program to keyestudio CNC GRBL V0.9
copy the folder GRBL_ Arduino_Library_keyes in the data packet and paste it into to the folder libraries, in your Arduino IDE document installation.

Code

#include <grblmain.h>
void setup(){
startGrbl();
}
void loop(){}

b. Install GrblController361 Software Grbl Controller is a piece of software which is used to send GCode to CNC Machines. Run Grbl Controller361 Setup in your installation packet, the interface below will come out:
Click Next to continue.
thumb

For a license agreement, please check I accept the agreement and click Next.
thumb

When you are ready to continue with Setup, click Next.
thumb

To continue, click Next. If you would like to select a different folder to install, click Browse.
thumb

To continue, click Next. If you would like to select a different folder to place program’s shortcuts, click Browse.
thumb

Select the additional tasks you would like Setup to perform while installing Grbl Controller, then click Next.
thumb

Click Install to continue with the installation.
thumb

Click Next.
thumb

At last, click ”Finish” to finish the installation.

At last, click ”Finish” to finish the installation.

c. Test G-Code on Grbl Controller
Power the main board using a USB cable and connect correctly all your external devices, then run Grbl Controller.
Choose Port name the same as IDE COM port and click “Open” to open the series port, connecting CNC Machines with computer.

thumb

After opening the series port, the “Open” button change into “Close/Reset” and get red!
At this time you can click the X axis、Y axis、Z axis as shown in below diagram to adjust the motion direction of motors.

thumb

Notes: after adjusting the axies, before beginning G-Code file, you must close and open again .
Now, it is time to have a try! Click ”Choose file” to choose one G-Code file named cn. to test in the data packet for a beginner, and the interface will come out:
GrblController .


thumb

Click “Begin” , and you can see how the motors move on coordinates.
