      Black Control Box

      Posted by Mario Nardoni on Oct 6th 2020

      By far the best Gerbl controller in the market. I tried several Chinese and Arduino CNC Shield controllers and not one come close to the ease of use and performance of the OpenBuild box. Support and customer service is unbeatable.

      Beyond impressed!

      Being fairly new to the CNC world, I have been using a woodpecker GRBL controller for the last few months. Learning a few $$ commands was not a big deal. Understanding what each one is and or does was a struggle. OpenBuilds did a great job with their interface. Great description for each $$ as well as easy to adjust. The overall interface with their software and controller is fantastic. More option for output and flexibility. This was pretty much plug and play. Make sure you read the documentation before doing anything with the controller. It is simple, yet complex in its abilities.

      Blackbox Motion Control System

      Posted by Duane Carrell on Jul 24th 2020

      The easiest control box of all my automated tools and I have five tools that use other than a Blackbox. This one really is easy to adapt to one of my other tools that had the control box get fried during a lightning storm.
