Smoothieboard is a controller board for digital fabrication machines. It is made to be used in 3D printers ( Reprap ), laser cutters, and CNC mills.

Compared to most existing boards, it is based on a more powerful microcontroller, much simpler to configure and use, and offers many new features.

BASIC features

  • All-in-one, ready to use controller board
  • 4/5 stepper motors drivers, 1/16 microstepping
  • 3 small MOSFETS
  • 3 big MOSFETS
  • 4 thermistor inputs ( for reading temperature )
  • 6 end-of-course endstop inputs
  • ethernet connector

Avantages

  • 32bits ARM-Cortex M3 microcontroller, running at 120Mhz
  • Integrated 4GB micro-SD card
  • Easy configuration by editing a file on the micro-SD card
  • Ethernet support ( requires soldering a connector ), presenting a Web interface, and a Telnet interface ( for Pronterface )
  • Direct access to the micro-SD card when connected to a computer via USB
  • Concurrent acces via serial using host software, on the same USB cable
  • Digital current control of stepper motor drivers ( no more tweaking potentiometers with a screwdriver )
  • More precise and higher speed movement
  • More correct and longer-ahead prediction of acceleration and movement
  • Multiple arm solutions ( cartesian, delta, h-bot, etc ... )
  • Hostless usage possible with a control panel
  • Good heatsinking, allowing full use of the stepper drivers potential
  • Many configuration options
  • SPI, I2C and serial port, free GPIO pins available for extension
  • Can be easily interfaced with external drivers for use with more powerful stepper motors
  • Can control a laser tube for laser cutting
  • Can control a spindle and other accesories for a CNC mill.
  • Very active community and development
  • Rich documentation ( see bellow )
  • Modular firmware making it easier to add features and to integrate into new machine designs
  • Provided pre-flashed and ready to use
  • RepRap compatible
