Hi there Thor community!

Is there a difference between the AngelLM grbl firmware and grbl-Mega for use with Thor? I see the versions are based on grbl 0.9 and 1.1 respectfully. Would using grbl-Mega have any effect on how Thor works?

Hi Erin!

I'm not 100% sure about the 1.1 Version, but there were some differences between grbl 0.9 and Thor's grbl. The main one is the amount of steppers supported. If I recall correctly GRBL 0.9 supports up to 6 stepper motors and I had to tweak it to add 2 more.

Hope it helps!
